building back up, what to do before trying to start (1 Viewer)

Aug 11, 2004
So Cal
just found the bolts I was needing. Looking for advice on what needs to be done before I try to start her up. Obviously an oil change, new spark plugs, but my main questions center around the rocker arms. I have fsm and will try to set it up accordingly, but what other helpful hints might you all have.

I'm not even sure what I should be searching under.

any help is always appreciated.

Torque down the rocker train bolts per spec., then set your preliminary valve lash.

Remember, you'll have to re-torque your head bolts again after a few cool down cycles. Same with the rocker bolts and then re-adjust the valve lash again.

NB. Re-torque the head bolts cold. Check valve lash hot. I'm sure you'll get more suggestions.
