Thanks Icemann!! I really appreciate all the help boiling the problem down. Sorry if I ruined your Thursday Night Football!!

See this thread for more info on them.

Rocker arm shaft jump out??

I am incredibly relieved to finally have found the problem. I might be more happy that I get to blame this all on a bad torque spec in the book!!! I thought my mechanical credibility was going to take a shot somewhere along thing process. Although....its not running yet...
