Rocker arm plastic clips. Leave them on? take them off???
So I just got all my parts in for doing my head gaskets on my 08 6.4. Of course ARP studs are on back order from the distributors but I was able to get the head gasket kit from little power shop, ARP studs from Pensacola fuel injection and complete set of rocker arms since I have some clattering and ticking coming from the engine.
I ordered the complete rails with all the rocker arms from a ford dealer and of course in shipping 4 of the plastic retainers broke. I was able to go to a local ford dealer and buy the plastic clips but these things are brittle and im worried about more breaking after install
After I bolt everything down, should I leave these clips on or take them off??? looks like they are only used for install purposes. any thoughts? about to pull the truck in to start tearing off the cab
