yes,  but screw in studs would be stronger . most pontiac heads have them.

will not work with stock valve cover , with oil drippers.

You got a deal Doug. I bought a set from another guy a couple weeks ago. 100 bucks shipped. Locks included though.

quote/ A set of 16 rockers comes with Self Lock Nuts and Pivot Ball.

did you get poly lock's with yours?  they are to tall  for the stock valve cover.

yes they are. Im having valve trouble already. Installed heights are off by alot and valve retainers will contact the valve seals. I need to get more machining done.
