Have just bought Edelbrock Performer RPM heads #60259 for the EFI 5.0L w.
Problem is finding 1.7 RRs that fit under FMS cast aluminium covers.
Reason for 1.7's is that am currently using Crane 2031 cam & am not changing it.
Choices are Crane Gold Race Stud 7/16" #36757 but I am told these will interfere with covers. Is it that the posilocks are too tall. Can I use a lock nut instead or is that a stupid question?
The only other alternative is Yella Terra Platinum shaft 1.77 RR 7/16
but are mega expensive.

Can anyone tell me if the Crane Golds will fit? For that matter what is everyone using?




1993 ED F/mont 5.0L, Auto, Edelbrock RPM's, CompCam XE276HR, Crane Gold Race 1.7's, Edelbrock Performer, 75mm T/B, MAP, 42lb , GenIII coils, PH4000's , Twin 2.5", Thermos & underspeeds, 3.7 LSD, 2800 stall and MoTec M800, 372fwhp @ 5400rpm & 387 ft-lb @ 4400 rpm.

Should be able to get a Comp Cams (Pro Magnum?) in 1.7 - not cheap though either.
