Greetings,

I finished replacing my cam, rockers, lifters, valves and had the head rebuilt. Question is how do I break in the new head?

If you installed the new cam with lube and the tensioner correctly, just drive the car and all will be OK>

Thanks Benzmac. What about the tensioner? I put it back the way it was. Is that o.k.? I realize that the subject should have been "Break-In" not breakin. Hope that doesn't discourage anyone from responding.
