torque wrench Not with a torque wrench ! Obtain your proper specs (clearance and sequence at TDC for each corresponding valve) set the valves using the specs obtained and the proper thickness gauge .Tighten each rocker to valve clearance until you have a slight drag on your gauge between the rocker and valve.

How do you set roller rockers for 1979 350 v8?

solid or hydraulic cam/lifters? If it is hydraulic, and the lifters are pumped up, you need to tighten the rocker nut until it *just* starts to grasp the pushrod (spin the pushrod while tightening the nut to feel it) Now, tighten the nut from the 12 o'clock position to the 4 o'clock position. Do this with each rocker with each cylinder at TDC of the compression stroke. Cams have cross duration, so the cylinder must be TDC on compressions stroke before adjusting the valves of that cylinder.

How to adjust hydraulic lifters?

To adjust hydraulic lifters with the engine off, turn the crankshaft until the lifter is on the camshaft base circle (not the lobe). The valve must be fully closed. Loosen the adjusting nut until you can wiggle the pushrod up and down. Then slowly tighten the rocker until all play is out of the valve train (cannot wiggle pushrod). Repeat the adjusting procedure on the other rockers. To adjust hydraulic lifters with the engine running, install a special oil shroud or some other device for catching oil spray off the rocker. Start and run the engine until it reaches operating temperature. Tighten all rockers until they are quiet. One at a time, loosen a rocker until it clatters. Then tighten the rocker slowly until it quiets down. This is zero valve lash.
