For real come on AliSC you know me better than that haha.

The buckets and shims i will always mark them up, because reshiming them is b%$# but it can be done.

Even the spring suppose to go a certain way you can't just drop them in.
For example if you have a spare cylinder head, take the Valve spring off and look at the bottom where it seats on the head and the top and you will the difference they don't have the same gap.

that is true. I messed up and mixed everything (ooops) so I sent the head to get a valve job and get my springs replaced with some BC and slap on my cam's while I was at it.

Na i didnt remove the buckets. So i guess i got lucky with that as well. Thanks again for all the input guys. You all really saved me a lot of money and time. I would have felt quite sheepish if i sent it to a shop and the machinist recognized the lettering sequence and STILL charged me for it. lol.
