I am curious to know if these little plastic pushrod checkers will work on an amc stud type head. I see many brands on the market but all seem to be for those  sbc motors. Just wondering since the valve angles are different. Actually they look like a waste of money but I am willing try.Thanks

Interesting question.  I've wondered the same thing, but also suspect not for the same reason, the
angles, spacing, and placement of the Valves and the Rocker Studs in the casting are or may be different.
Look forward to what others have to say about this.

I've never seen one of these but after reading the instructions and some of the comments on Summit, I don't think I'd have much faith in it.  To take this relationship with the valve closed and the lifter on the base circle assumes too much to make me comfortable.
