Rocker Arm Stud Change?

I'm curious if i can swap out the rocker arm studs on these cylinder heads for a set of 7/16 ARP studs i have and put on my 7/16" 1.6 rocker arms if so, would i have any Rocker arm to valve cover clearance issue, or affect the valve travel to piston issue? Because i have a set of both 7/16 stud and 7/16 rocker arm 1.6 brand new in the box for months now and saw this is a 3/8 size. Or do i have to buy new rocker arms?

Accepted Answer
Steven, you could swap to the 7/16 ARP studs, I would recommend checking the rocker arm geometry regardless of which way you go to ensure proper alignment with the pushrods, spring to rocker arm interference and to align the roller tip over the top of the valve stem as best as possible.
