I rounded to the 2" on individual cylinders

Response to Re: Valve spacing on Edelbrock heads, please check my numbers

I was getting 2.01 to 2.02 but talking to Dove on this and they said that there could be as much as .030 rockers for any cylinder. The distance between cylinders was my concern so that I measured to the .001. I got the left side (#5 - #8) assembled and mounted on the head this afternoon and there is good alignment between the rocker rollers and the valve stems. Tomorrow I'll do the right bank and bench check them like I did today and hope it works again. The washer spacers from Dove are .05 nominal so unless I bought others I was pretty much constrained by .05".
