Never really got around to posting pictures of the install.

Such a pain lol but the top end power is very nice.

Also the valve cover gasket is leaking now. Great.

Dude I couldn't feel my middle/ring fingers for a few days.

The method I did involved getting a nylon rope and pull the spring leg back while my friend placed the intermediate rocker in its spot. Good god that was difficult, those are some seriously heavy springs.
