Thanks, Steve.

I located an used original rocker shaft support for a good price, but I'd have to install it myself, and that wouldn't deal with any of the other items you mentioned.

I also ran across an old post on the YT Board that mentioned an outfit in California that rebuilds all kinds of rocker assemblies, including Continental engines.

I contacted them, and their price is a little bit less than a new, aftermarket rocker assembly, but I'm thinking about trying them - I'd rather have a rebuilt original than a new aftermarket.

Tom I have a couple of rocker shaft assemblies laying around. I would have to check to see how worn they are if you are even interested in a used set. If you are I will check them but if you want them they are yours.

Glad to help. Sounds like you're on the right track.

If you go the rebuilt route, be sure it has the oil plugs in the ends of the shaft. You may need to shift everything back and fourth on the shaft a little to get each rocker centered over the valves.

I always set the lifters, then start it up with the cover off and watch for oil to drip from every rocker. Then run the valve lash again, just to be sure.
