Hi to all just like to introduce myself and help clarify this situation, i have been assisting kent in finding this inherent problem.
I'm posting this up to protect the rest of you from what i call
*No skill Wannabee Mechanic's that have no idea of what their doing*
I believe i can stand by my qualifications of 17 years of level 1 motorsport, qualified trade teacher, diploma in advanced automotive technology and 1 of only 7 people in Australia who has a degree in motorsport engineering.

Well..
I have not seen in all my years, a worse case of poor workmanship from somebody who obviously does not have the skill set or the basic knowledge of an apprentice in his first week, how could you possible pass yourself off and con people into believing that you have an idea at all, some of the fundamental mistakes of attempting to fit a modified cam then not having any knowledge of the effects this has;
1. Mis-calculation of lobe heights
2. Not knowing how to calculate spring bind (this resulted in removing the second spring *Yeah that'll fix it YOU IDIOT*
3. buying a rollmaster timing set and not knowing how to set it up
4. removing or forgetting to install upper spring seat spacers (this results in losing tension and causing valve bounce **IDIOT**)
5. instead of allowing for the lobe differences, and the use of remaking shims to get back the correct height, you used little bits of cut up aluminum cans placed under the stacks instead of proper shims which can be brought for 10c from any parts supplier TIGHT a** IDIOT HOW LONG DO YOU THINK THAT WOULD LAST BEFORE IT COLLAPSED


Let this be a warning to all to take it to somebody that know exactly what there doing before you fork out your hard earned
