Problem with rocker arm

Or a big hammer and a nut in a vice to make the top of the nuts a bit more oval & therefore more self-locking ?
If the parts are NEW from QRG then that should NOT be performed :o

Problem with rocker arm

Eric I think you could try using a 3/8 unf nut on top of the correct Ford nut and use it to hold the tappet gaps.

Problem with rocker arm

is a “k-nut” IIRC Sorry Phil NO. The K nut has a loose serrated washer on the bottom that when it hits the material to be fixed it " splits " to " grab" the material, therefore you can`t get it to lock unless you over tighten the rocker, not ideal :o The Essex rocker nut has a large Hardened base w...

Problem with rocker arm

Can`t upload the picture of the special nut used on the V6 rockers, but it is a hardened nut that pushes the rocker down and locks in place on the stud when the gap is set. No locknuts used. But if using chemical glue to stop it loosening don`t work a locknut on the top should also help if there is ...

Torque setting?

Copper washer is to be used on ALL face to face hydraulic fittings
You could get away with a Dowty washer, this is a washer with a rubber centre bonded to it.

Problem with rocker arm

Yes i`m very sorry Eric but if the nuts are not gripping the threads on the studs there is a fault.

What you could try is cleaning the studs and threads with thinners to remove all traces of oil then use a threadlock type of retainer and leave it for a few hours before starting the car???

End of an era
I am now unable to re manufacture Scimitar parts.
I have boxed up all my saleable parts and rented Two garages to keep them in.
One car is going tommo, god knows where the rest are going.
