L_L_S,

I would take a step back before you set the rocker arms. If you replaced your heads, you have probably changed the push rod / rocker geometry. I think the first step would be to check your...

I noticed you still had the dizzy in with the intake and timing cover off. I've never done it this way but I suspect that had something to do with how hard it came out. Sometimes, if it the dizzy...
