    I think that is what I like to call the rectal stretching fee. Looks like he got the cheap package too. It costs more to get them to use lube...

    Nothing wrong with spin dropping heads to set the quench.
    If you're going to use the S&S head torque method, use 10, 20, and 90 degrees. Works well and shouldn't pull a stud. I find that S&S cases can't stand the same torque #s that the Harley Davidson Twin Cam cases can.
    Noise in rear cylinder ? Diagnose the problem. If its in the rocker arm/shaft area,you can use Rocker Lockers, this way you don't weaken the rocker arm saddles by removing any material or modifying them.
    You may want to call Randy at Hyperformance, and explain the problems you're having. He's stand up, and will help you.

    Randy is who did the work.. appreciated ur input and glad someone knows what the hell spin dropping is.. lol
    I spoke with s&s today and they told me the same thing Randy did which was to throw some red or green locktite on the shaft for the rocker arms which is most likely causing my tick. So I'll keep you posted.

    John, do you use the Cometic torque values on your builds or stick to SS? Cometic seems to represent 42ftlbs, but wondering if that is the Harley cases you mention and you stick with SS values.

    Pretty much what s&s said, except they said do it and let it sit for about 10 seconds or so and loosen them up and do it again..

    What explanation of the push rods? As to why one had more thread showing then the others?? Idk.. did it 4 times which was very time consuming and got the same result every time..figured if something was wrong I would have heard it right away.. instead she fired right up and rumbled

    So a bit of an update, after many different responses and so on I spoke with S&S and Cometic to get a straight answer because some are saying just re use the gaskets and just re torque to many different specs.. Cometic claims they test torque specs and stress points on many different engines and assure me that I'll be fine if I use their specs which are a 5 step process which is a slow and gradual torque. They also claim that if I don' use their specs my gaskets will never seal. So I ended up speaking with an engineer at s&s and he claims I should be fine and to use their specs. So I ordered new gaskets and I will use the specs they give me when they get here and let you all know how it goes.

    Maybe the ticking you hear is the head gasket leak
