I just reassembled my 5.0 out of my 86 bronco. I have the factory rocker arms. I am assuming I just crank them down nice and snug and that’s it? No getting the feeler gauge out and adjusting lash or anything? I don’t see any other way this would work, but wanted to ask before I fire it up.

These are pedestal mounted rockers right? With bolts through the rockers?
Yes the stamped steel jobs with the insert the bolt goes through that the rocker rides on. Then every pair is “connected” by a little stamped trough the pedestal sits in.

Yeah I think those are just torque and go - I’ve heard from 15 - 21 ft-lb. If it were me, I’d feel better about making sure each valve was on its base cam circle when torquing, but I’ve read that it isn’t necessary.

I just did this with stud mounted roller rockers, but that’s a different procedure.

Thanks that’s what I thought, I’m used to doing roller rockers back in my drag racing days, this was just easy....too easy.
