Alright, I've had the valve cover off my car a million
times for different reasons.. and have also had the
Rocker Assembly off a couple times since I've owned
it. I didn't notice this until last night when I was
swapping cams.

I opened up my Chilton's to get a couple torque specs
for some nuts and bolts. They listed my rocker assembly
bolts as 8mm and the end caps as 6mm. I checked with
Google and this confirmed it as well...

However -
Every bolt on my assembly is 12mm except for the two
at the distributor. Those are 10mm

Does this have something to do with Honda starting to
use A6 parts on the B7 heads after they ran out back
in 93 or whatever?

Everywhere I've looked says 8 and 6. What's up with that?

-Jay

Right on. Thanks. I was thinking, "those are F'n tiny for holding a cam and
everything else in place...

Definitely not thinking things through today...or this week.
I seriously need a xanax and a 12 pack of beer to hit
the "reset button"...
