i was going to take it too the track but the motor had a nock. i pulled the motor and it looks like part of the piston broke off. it marked the head up alittle.

Use ARP rocker studs...put a little dab of blue loctite on the lower threads...the arp studs are nicely spot faced at the top which helps the set screws stay put instead of backing off
