They have cam kits that include cam, lifters, springs, retainers,and keepers. No push rods, they must be purchased separatly.

I am assuming you are talking about the rocker arm stud when you refer to positive stop.

Later model Ford engines that used rocker arm studs with hydraulic cams were 'necked down' where the rocker arm adjusting nut screw on, thus rendering them not adjustable for the hydraulic cams. The procedure was to put the push rods in, slap the rockers and fulcrums on and then tighten the rocker nut till it came to a positive stop.

With a stock hydraulic cam/valve train, this set the preload properly unless the block or heads had been milled an excessive amount. If that was the case, then you had to change to a shorter pushrod to get back the proper preload on the lifters.

Sorry, but I NEVER use their website. I use their cataloge. The "K" kits generally contain the cam, lifters, recomended springs, retainers, keepers, and sometimes PC style valve seals. The foot notes explain any exceptions. Tell me what kit or cam you are interested in and I'll try and give you the contents of the kit if one is available.
