I need to install my rocker arms to my clevo and i was wondering if anyone has a manual they can double check to tell me what the order is of putting them on, as i really dont want to take to risk of bending a pushrod.

cheers.

If you are just throwing stock rocker arms then there is no order, just throw them on and bolt them all down.
If you're fitting adjustables then you'll need to get each cylinder at TDC to adjust them.

Yup what Walker said, just make sure that if they are old ones they go back on the one the came off! Other than that there is no order.

The old rebuild book i have cites a useful technique for this job. Saves rolling the motor around x8 to TDC for each cylinder...

Essentially it involves marking your pulley in 3 places. Rotate to the mark and do cylinders AB then roll around to next mark do DE and so on. (letters substituted for forgotten cyls!).

Don't have the book handy, maybe someone else does.
