solid or hydraulic cam/lifters? If it is hydraulic, and the lifters are pumped up, you need to tighten the rocker nut until it *just* starts to grasp the pushrod (spin the pushrod while tightening the nut to feel it) Now, tighten the nut from the 12 o'clock position to the 4 o'clock position. Do this with each rocker with each cylinder at TDC of the compression stroke. Cams have cross duration, so the cylinder must be TDC on compressions stroke before adjusting the valves of that cylinder.

How do you adjust roller rockers with solid lifters on a 1978 350 chevy?

First look up the back lash for your cam, and get feelers for that and .001 bigger. Use them for a go-no go set of gages. Then, with #1 at tdc for compression, set 1,2,5,and 7 intakes and 1,3,4, and 8 exhausts so the go fits and the no go does not. Then rotate the engine one revolution (#6 tdc) and do the rest.

Definition of roller support?

Roller supports are free to rotate and translate along the surface upon which the roller rests. The surface can be horizontal, vertical, or sloped at any angle. The resulting reaction force is always a single force that is perpendicular to, and away from, the surface. Roller supports are commonly located at one end of long bridges. This allows the bridge structure to expand and contract with temperature changes. The expansion forces could fracture the supports at the banks if the bridge structure was "locked" in place. Roller supports can also take the form of rubber bearings, rockers, or a set of gears which are designed to allow a limited amount of lateral movement.
