Did you assemble the Rocker assembly correctly? you didn't by some chance forget those washers while assembling it did you?

May I suggest you use a greggory's/max ellery's/genuine Ford manual to put the rocker set back together, that way you are garranteed not to put any of the washers the wrong way, but again it may not be the rocker set, you may have done something else to upset the oil. What grade oil did you use???
