How To Install and Set Up Roller Lifters, Roller Rockers, and Pushrods

This video covers the installation of roller lifters, roller rockers, and pushrods. It also covers how to align the rocker arms and set up pushrod guide plates. This work was done on a small block Chevy, but the principals apply to other engines getting these parts.

This video is an excerpt from a longer video where I build a 383 stroker for my 1990 C1500 pick up, #ETCGDadsTruck.
