rockers

Yes, they are for stock 3/8 studs.
These are roller tips, not full roller rockers.
Their really isn't much of an advantage of using these over stock rockers, they still have the same pivot ball design as stock rockers.
I would just get some stock rockers and use them until you can purchase some true rollers.
In my opinion!

By the way, why can't you use the self aligning roller you have.
They will work if you take off your guide plates.

they are better than stock Stamped rockers....

the roller tip is proven useless as it's related to HP gain

if i remove the guide plates....

I think some of the screw in's will shank out and I'll have to have them redrilled. Is there an advantage over plates or self-align?
I figured it wouldnt matter much if I go 1.5's or .6, The 274 I have is just above .500 lift even with the 1.6s

If your looking for some true roller rockers I have a set of Jegs 1.5 3/8 on Craigslist for a $100 they only have 500 miles on them. I can bring them to the Nor-Cal picnic. I'll know later this week if I'm a go for the picnic.

i had

a set of the 1.52's i ran a few years. Seemed to do fine , ran them with some hyd and solid cams. David Vizard really likes them , he does alot of testing and SBC building. he recommends them only too 350 psi spring pressure. I bought a set when the cam i bought for a street car , was suppose to do fine with stock rockers and it broke one.

I remember one test against them and full rollers ,,, no HP difference , nor was there a big HP difference over stock rockers.

There is a life cycle of the aluminum to consider full rollers on a street car. I've never heard of one breaking on the street , but there is a duty cycle of the aluminum material they're made from.

I liked mine and i'd buy another set , especially after what i read David Vizard thinks about them.
