ARP head studs hit valve cover?


My ARP studs hit the stock valve covers on my 354 hemi. Is this normal? How do I correct this? Thought about trimming bottom of stud and removing the washer under the nut. Will that be ok? Also will the Hot Heads aluminum valve covers clear them if I don't shorten them? Thanks!

Stock valve covers don't have much clearance... not enough for longer studs or even for stock adjustable rockers. Like myself we need the taller valve covers. I emailed HH and they said their HH ones have lots of clearance. Email them with your stud height and they generally reply right away. Nothing wrong with getting some new shiny bits :)
Cheers
