AFR Heads Crane Gold Rockers Geometry check

Hi, after running my engine for about 500 miles, I had a chance to take a look at the wear patterns on my Valve Stems. With the AFR heads and Crane Gold rockers and with what I had read recently, I am not sure if this is acceptable. During assembly I was pretty sure I had the correct push rod length best that I could tell. Luckily the lift is not too high, only .566 which may help.

Can someone who is way more knowledgeable tell me what you think. I have the best and the worst below in the pics. Most are in between these two.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Andy

Yeah the patterns look a little wide. More than likely need longer push rods.

Pattern way too wide.
I suggest watching Scott’s video and remeasuring your lengths.

Why is it we never have time or money to do it the right way in the beginning but we always have time and money to do it over again?
