Yep, still hanging in there.. working mostly on some medical issues. Doing a little maintenance on Farmtruck. Installed a low-stall converter. To my knowledge there hasn't been any issues with oem lifter trays, but billet pieces are always trick.. girders are good insurance when using high lift cams.. seems you have been waiting on the ARP studs for a long time. Surprised there isn't a set stashed somewhere you could have gotten.. anyway the extra time will allow you to dial in the springs to perfection.. I still have alot of work I want to do, maybe I can get back at it soon..
