I was hoping to get back on the road without pulling the heads. (Swapping springs, modifying retainers, etc. on the block.) Can it be done this way?
Tom -- Are the special retainers you mention for more lift, the same as are usually paired with the LT4 springs? I would love the part number, if you come across it.
I was told LT4 Springs, LT4 Retainers, and umbrella seals would get me to .525" (more than enough for my current plan.) Is this right?
Is there a downside to cutting the guide boss (other than having to pull the heads)? Does shortening it make the valve less stable?
Happy to post so others can learn from my mistake -- thanks for not kicking me while I'm down. Yeah, I screwed up...
