    Set your rocker shaft on the head In it's correct orientation and you will see how everything should go.

    the 4 long studs go through the rocker shaft the 5 short only through the head.
    Easy to see 4 on one side and 5 on other.

    Thanks, guys. This was helpful. The head has been installed and torqued down.
