Ok guys. I have a 37 ford slantback. The donner car was 87GT. So I have A 37 ford mustang. Here is my questions. The block is rebuilt. Ported e7s. 650 carb. F303 cam. When I picked the heads. Guy told me just bolt them down and toque to 20. That's what I did. Stock rockers push rods and lifters. It runs. But I see in the posts that not the way it's done. What can i do now. Car runs strong. But i want it right. HELP

You didn't specify so I will assume stock pedestal rockers. I found this video on YouTube:

You want to make sure that you are on the base of the cam when adjusting that rocker and you have to get 20ft-lb within 1/4 - 1 full turn. If it takes more then 1 turn then you need shims.
