Thanks Joe. The machine shop thinks that’s the way to go too. Think I’ll go that way as well.
My rocker assembly is up to get a new shaft and rocker and checked out.

The rebuilder up in Northern Calif, I’ve heard he’s the guy everyone goes to including D&D, is going to come out with a stronger shaft option. Not available yet but will be after the 1st sometime if anyone is interested. He said there is an issue with it breaking at the end, on pumped up engines I guess. I do see that those stronger shafts are available for the other Buick engines with the same type of valve train.
