Dodged a bullet here I think. I had checked them about 3 or 4 years ago at 15K and figured 30K was my next inspect. :newsmile047: My pinion shaft runout is .0026/.0027 so after much soul searching and checking the couch for spare change I decided to go gear drive and have on order : Andrews 21G cams/gear kit/gear install kit S & S Quickie pushrod kit/33-5350 lifters all tools to do except I will wait on the cam/bearing press tool The good ol' days of the Herko Kit are gone.....I've got about $1,074 so far still needing various o-rings and gaskets.
