So I called a local performance shop and they hooked me up with some new ARP studs that will put the fulcrum closer to the base of the stud instead of on the threads. I have installed them but haven't had a chance to adjust the valves yet. Hopefully tomorrow.
That sucks buckeye. But glad you seem to have figured it out.
