loose rocker arm

Hi. I have an 06 charger with the 5.7. I just had to put a new head on. I have 2 loose rocker arms. For the life of me, I cannot figure out how to get these tightened up.

Didn't mean to post this here. The website decided to choose for me. But all the same.

The lash is controlled by the lifter (lash adjuster). There is no adjustment. If the rocker arms have excessive lash, you either have worn cam lobes, worn lifters, or really bad wear on the rocker/rocker shaft assembly. It's also possible you have bent pushrods if there was mechanical interference before.
