    crane shaft mount rockers

    all in a nicely packed box


    one cylinder set up


    rocker has a polymatrix bearing. no needle bearings means less friction loss.


    Rocker stud towers had to be cut down .170" to fit the shaft mount. the holes had to be drilled and tapped to 3/8-16 thread pitch.


    You can see where the valve cover wall had to be notched as well to clear the rocker. Also, on the right, you can see where the bolt boss had to be machined down.


    stands on head


    rockers installed


    some close ups of the rockers. will need the 3/4" spacers to raise the valve covers enough to clear.

    but wouldn't a set of those polished aluminum taller valve covers look awesome on your car? Just think, you could use the $20 you get from me for your old covers to offset some of the costs.
