The problem with the old style tappet adjusters is the design of the head. The head is flat and square. It does not contour the valve very well which "digs" into the valve stem and over time causing your valve stem to wear prematurely.
To fix this problem you have to replace the valve or resurface the stem. Both take time and money. Or you could install a set of new mushroom tappet adjusters that save time, money and your valve stems will last up to 5X longer.
The fix - why mushroom tappet adjusters?
All mushroom tappet adjusters feature a round head to help prevent premature valve tip wear. The round head allows smooth and even pressure when opening and closing the valve.
Our tappet adjusters are made exclusively for CBS right here in the USA. All adjusters have been properly heat treated to ensure longevity. The ends have a slot for easier and more accurate adjusting - nuts not included.
