Yeah it sounded smooth. I just had it running for a minute because I haven't filled the radiator yet but the head swap is done other than that.

Kissin' hands and shakin' babies aren't ya John!?!?

hahaha. I'm a little curious....I'm not too familar with the 3.0/4.0 OHV engines, but I am with chev gen1's. How exactly do you adjust the rockers in such a tight engine bay with crap all ontop of the valve covers and such?? Just like set 'em up with no wiggle, add half a turn, call it good? I'm used to popping off the cover and adjusting while it's running, spittin' oil on the manifolds or headers. lol.

I kinda like the chrome grill on it but I might not if it was 4wd...not sure. Ford got smart on the rockers, they are positive stop so you just torque em down and forget them...
