Pops those square spacers must be the spacers you mention that are .062. I believe I saw those when I took this apart but not real sure. I should have taken pics when I had this apart. If those spacer are in place, what do I need to do to correct this? Where can I get stock feet or screws for this and not the ball style. I did notice my 1/2 vw uses these same feet or screws or the swivel type.Tony those are not stock valve adjustment screws, those are aftermarket swivel feet adjustment screws. Because they are longer between the rocker arm and the valve stem they require a spacer under the rocker arm. If I remember correctly the thickness of the spacer is .062 . As you can see in the ad the spacers come with the swivel feet screws.
I have use those but took them off and used the stock VW screws. The stock screws hit the valve stem face slightly off center to slowly rotate the valves when the engine is running. The swivel screw that I had seem to hit the valve stem face more in the center so I didn't know if the valves were rotating correctly so I went back with the stock replacement screw. Never had any problem with the stock screws.
What is your position on the springs. They all have the yellow to the top, this one the yellow paint in on the opposite side and not seen in the pic. But it is at the top.
Thanks again for the advice.
