Don't know what to say,we have the same tool at the dealer and it's still in one piece. I've always found the exhaust side to be the easiest to install. Just kind of catch all the pushrods with the cups of the rockers and then lay the shaft over the stands. The intake side you have to make sure that the pushrods are seated down into the tappets.It's a pain when the engine is in the vehicle because you can't see holes in the head when installing the pushrods. Just my experience with them being a flat rate tech,good luck with your new car.

I think the problem of rocker instillation is from the very shallow pushrod cups in the lifters. The pushrods fall out of the cups and make instillation difficult for me.

Going south today

Today's the day. I hope the little things I've done helped rather than hurt. I'm fortunate to have Jeff, Cooter, Sid, Shawn and Jimmy ( The County Dog) helping. Collectively all this experience is genius.
