Anybody have a line on a pair of solid finger followers for purchase or loan? I'm looking for solid ones to degree in my new cams, but I have no clue as to when I can sources something like that. The stock ones are hydraulic, so with no oil pressure, they will collapse rather than move the valave while I'm trying to measure actual lift in the degreeing process.

Thanks all,
Herb

For sake of the search feature for future researchers - I did find the things I was looking for. Dale on F150Online directed me to Anderson Ford (http://www.andersonfordmotorsport.com/) where they can be found in "New Products" , "4.6/5.4 Section" a bit less than 1/2 way down the page. The verbiage for them is:

"NEW AFM SOLID ADJUSTABLE TAPPETS

While we were testing camshafts on the 4.6's we found that no one had an accurate way to check piston to valve clearance.

We developed a solid tappet that is adjustable to check piston to valve clearance accurately.

THIS IS NOT DESIGNED TO RUN WITH, JUST FOR CHECKING CLEARANCE.

AFM new solid adjustable tappets
comes in set of two
$33.95"

Thanks,
Herb
