Thanks Luli, I noticed that the holes in the rocker shaft are at 9 o`clock which I can alter to 7 pm .The hole in the actual tappet is at 3 o`clock is this right. I would have thought they should line up. As I said this isn`t my car ,I`m overhauling the head for a friends car so Im not familiar with this model
