    ATI on everything... looking good so far. The mechanical fuel pumps are just heat sinks for vapor lock, so my .02 would be an electric. Don’t skimp on pushrods, they’re a mile long.

            Haven’t checked them yet waiting on gaskets I will be using ones that look exactly like factory covers but they are taller.

            I seen them hit on the outside flats of the covers. Oversize retainers and / or springs.

            Don't you need longer plug tubes or do V covers compensate for that?

            installed height of the springs is 2.154
            the OD of them is 1.510 and the retainers
            are 1.340

            they will be close im sure but they clear these

              The covers I’m gonna be using are from Arruzza and have extra clearance on the exhaust side

              I would think they would need longer tubes but not sure I will know more on them tomorrow.

              They're probably taller in the exhaust area, that won't affect tube length. I kick myself for selling a NOS pair of those Mopar valve covers with single plug inserts and 4 chrome oil cops $240 dumb.

                Well I’m not real excited about buying the oversized covers from John Arruzza. I have read when you buy something from him it’s yours if it works or not. So I going on the hunt for some
                regular ole factory or aftermarket tin ones and will make them work. Besides I’m not sure if there are correct tubes to use on the ones john has to offer.
