• Hardened Lash Caps for 8mm and 9mm Valves Set of 8

These are small steel "hats" that fit on the end of the valve, and these wear out instead of your valve. 

 
A good idea if you have a bigger cam than stock, ratio rockers, OR stainless valves.
 
These caps add around .060" to the valve height. 
 
This is a set of 8 to do one engine.

It's important to note that you use lash caps OR swivel feet/Elephant's Feet/911 Adjusters, you never use both.
 
Lash caps are used with Scuffer Tip Rockers (rockers that have the adjusting screw on the pushrod end), or when using non-swivel type valve adjusting screws. 
 
Consider Lash Caps as replaceable items as they wear out, they are cheap.

Some people say that lash caps "must fit tight on the valve", but we disagree. It should be a snug but not tight, fit. A little float is not going to kill you.
 
It's not uncommon for lash caps that are "snug" to be a hassle to get back off again, as the valve end deforms and swells inside the lash cap. This requires a special puller to remove the cap.
