buster i've been hearing every time you tighten your head bolts or rocker box bolts you have to check your pushrod adjustment ever since i've been coming to this forum.do i believe it? i've asked this question here before if the pushrods were set with all the bolts tight wouldn't retightening the bolts put the pushrod adjustment back to where it was?this scenario was not directed at a recent rebuild but on a motor that's not been apart for a while.
