429 heads

Hi I asked a question on here before and got great answers and ideas so i thought i would try again.

I have a 1970 429 with the dove heads. I do not have adjustable rocker arms but i do have studs, screwed into the head that you torque the rockers on.
The question I have is can i change the studs out and install the adjustable studs.   I would like to install a larger cam and was told without adjustable rocker arms I cannot run larger than a .500 lift.         
  Any info would be appreciated  thank  Andy

My suggestion is that you do some research such as reading "How to rebuild your Ford V8 351C-351N-400-429-460" written by Tom Moore.  http://books.google.com/books?id=MDw7l7wHs4oC&pg=PA33&lpg=PA33&dq=429+adjustable+rocker+arms&source=bl&ots=hUmHRiQdH2&sig=ze-lVUdBi34qA5GyfKnKmDq-XUQ&hl=en&sa=X&oi=book_result&resnum=1&ct=result

thanks  I actually just got done getting info out of that book. i do have it and was reading it after i posted the question.  i found out the adjustable rocker arm studs are for solid lifter engines and non adjustable are for hyd. lifters.        so now i was wondering if anyone knows the max lift i can have in a cam for the stock heads with stock valve train?     
      thanks

That is an extremely technical question, and one that I don't think you will get an answer on here.  You might want to consult with a Ford tech in your local area to get that answer.
