Default Could use some help!

I purchased a rv cam from camcraft for my 99 ford ranger with the 3.0 v6 vulcan motor, i did a complete new build using my old stock rocker arms,new lifters,old pushrods with your rv cam, after i tightened the rocker arms to specs and noticed that there are a few rockers that have what i think is alot of play when those valves are closed, "is this normal"?.

you should run the engine first to get the lifters full of oil, I am guessing they are hyd. lifters then re-check your rockers, or just replace them and be on the safe side.

The old parts might just be a little worn out.

The engine is on a stand so it maybe hard to run it.. before i took the engine apart there was no play in the rockers.
