    Yup, that's the plan, unless I hit the lotto, then it would a trip to Big Dog for a 330 K9, and a Mastiff for the wife.

    Chuck those LT spacers on the lifters in the trash. They don't help the noise any thats for sure and just make them a pain to adjust.

    I asked John Sachs about them in a post a while back and with just a mild build like most of us have we will never see any benefit just more hassle.

    I think I read somewhere that unless your floating around a 0.640 lift they are not super useful

    They were quite. I had to pull the nose cone and reseal some oil seepage, so I had to readjust. The problem I'm having is my valve springs are so weak, It's hard to bleed the lifters out. I had to do them twice the last time too. No biggie.

    Yea...the LT kit definitely makes your adjustments less forgiving in terms of noise.
