      VERY VERY big Thank You to Josh Melocik, Quarter Master, Geoff Tickes, Paul Volk and the man this is all about, Tim "The Man" Zimmer for the fine equipment that I recieved from the auction. I don't think I ever seen anything so pretty in a clutch...

      After contacting gsc, I figured I would offer their response for future searches.“If your protrusion height of your valves is correct and the base circle of your cams is correct then our lifters will not hold your valve open at full extension...
