Re: Valve Retainers and locks

I just put together a set of Comp retainers and locks and they definitely sit further down in the retainer. But that really doesn't mean anything.. That's also why I said in my original reply that its impossible to tell from your picture Probably not a bad idea to pull one off and see how it fits the retainer / valve.

One other thing I noticed in your picture but it is really the wrong angle to tell for sure . . . . how far down in the polylock is the set screw ? Cant see it in the picture which tells me it is pretty far down and might not be allowing much thread engagement on the stud. You might need longer studs.
