Yes, I've installed the Adjusters. With the stock cams, I had to shorten the threaded part of the adjuster on the intake side just a little so the pushrod would fit in place. The exhaust fit okay with no modification to the adjuster but I did remove the decompression stuff, you don't need to do this, I just did it to get rid of it. You will need to replace the decompression collar with the one included with the new adjusters if you keep the decompressor, no big thing. The adjusters work just fine and are much less likely to allow the pushrods to jump off the cam followers.Royal Enfield people are good people.Cheers,Bill
Machine some length off the threaded part of the adjuster. BeCAUSE the shoulder the follower slips up into is too deep & won't fit up over the edge of the follower. Or worded differently, the threaded part is too long. I think machining off 2 or 3 threads should do the trick. I'm surprised your exhaust side fit OK. Maybe I can just grind a hair off mine. Thanks.
I did not have to machine anything. it fitted just fine. you need to take the rocker out to fit it, or screw it fully in and the then fit it with the pliers making sure that the top of the pushrod locks into the tip of the rocker arm.
Why mess around at all? in this situation, I just lever the valve stem end of the rocker down a bit, raising the pushrod end of it and partially opening the valve at the same time and then you're ready to slip the pushrod under the rocker. As long as the pushrod still isn't too long when you let go, you're good to go in a few minutes tops. B.W.
due to the different shape of the adjusters, the rockers may need to be taken out first. an easy job. certainly there is no need to make new threads, stuff like that.
tooseevee,How did your project go? Did you lever the rocker down? If so what did you use to do this with? Just thought some of the readers of this thread might like to know what your solution was and how you did it. Me too.Cheers,Bill
