You need to get polylocks for steel rockers they are longer than polylocks for roller rockers . It should solve your problem . Most replacement studs are made to be used with polylocks .

Didn't get to parts store till my lunch break today, took along a stud, rocker, nut and ball. After tossing a few ideas back and forth decided to try a set of roller rockers. The screw in studs that replaced the press in studs sit on top of the guide plates, making the stud sit a little higher. The polylocks had the same shoulder as the nuts that I have. I'll let you know how this turns out......

The polylocks will go down farther than a nut .If you screw a nut on a stud it will stop when the threads run out but if you screw a polylock on a stud it will go down untill it hits the lock and if you take the lock out you will see it will keep on going down the stud and the stud would come out the top of the polylock .

The polylocks are threaded to the bottom, wont it split as you torque it down???

If you look at a polylock it is hollow at the bottom so it screws down over the stud . Same studs one with a polylock one with a stock nut thats as far as the nut will go but you can adjust the polylock and it fits down over the stud . Get it ?  DSC01562

Once again I went back to the parts store with hardware in hand.
Now, the APR studs that we used to replace the press in studs, are the only studs available for this application. They are 1/2" thread by 7/16" thread. The threads on the rocker side are much longer than a standard stud, they dewarf the standard size studs that you show in the picture, sticking up nearly 1/4" above the rocker. They had 2 sizes of polys the first was to short to get the allen screw in flush. The second was way to tall.
The complete set of comp roller rockers have a much thicker fulcrum and sit properly to set the lash.

Would someone tell me how to post pictures to these threads Confused
