Im thinking you can but i thought id just ask anyway... Can i bolt on my AU rocker gear and fit an AU cam to an EF Tickford head???

As the head i purchased has no cam and rocker gear supplied and my existing rocker gear and lifters are in good nic.

thats why he said bolt on the au rocker gear to.

IIRC you should be able to. im pretty sure people with hybrid's bolt the e series rocker gear on to be able to use earlier cam regrinds.

The rocker gear ratio needs to match the cam. In my opinion if you are using AU rockers and AU cam then provided it bolts down then all should be OK. The AU heads have conical springs compared to straight E series, that would be one area of potential clearance problems.
