    Question Needle bearing in oil pan

    Took my car in for an oil change and my mechanic found needle bearings in my oil pan. How much is it going to cost me to repair if they are truly needle bearings. Going to pontiac next week to verify.

    i believe those would be from your rockers. if you do them yourself it wont be too expensive. it all depends what rockers you get.

    Can you suggest what is good and what is not? What compression? My engine is stock for now. I see some on ws6store.com, but not sure what to purchase. Thanks.

    I have some stockers I just took off of my car when I did my H/C/I Swap if you're interested.

    The stockers are very good, WS6 store has the trunnion upgrade kit, or buy some straight repalcement stockers. You really don't need to think about about epxensive rockers unless you get into heads, high lift cams and very strong springs.

    go stockers..stockers are actually one of the best..they are light compared to most..if you go aftermarket go Harland sharp ....this is actually a relatively common thing for ls1 and ls7 i believe ..maybe also for the ls2,ls3,ls6 etc..but i have only seen documented cases with the ls1 and ls7...get them replaced asap..if you have alot of them in there

    Just put some stockers in there. Changing non adjustable rocker arms is easy, you could do it yourself in just a few hours.

    it only took me a couple hours total to put my Crane gold race rockers on. i got the stock ones off in maybe 20-30 mins. i put the studs in and let the locktite set overnight. then finished the next day. i am thinking about selling them for 500 if you want them.

    if you have a high lift cam or plan on a high lift cam I would go roller rockers. I run the stockers on mine at the moment but at some point I want some rollers. The reason I want them is due to an article I read recently. The stockers on high lift cams will nose dive into the valve tip putting front to back pressure on them and wear the valve guides out faster on bronze valve guides.
