Hey guys, I wanna blow the trumpet for a good old aussie company that makes roller rockers.

They arent toys or pretty looking things with flash colours but they certainly are quality that i think may even be better than Crane and Crower. Yes i know its a big statment but a couple of years ago Yella Terra went to the states and attended some big performance parts show thing and won an award for their roller rockers.

Oh why am I posting, they make rockers for CHEV S/B and B/B in all those ratios you are talking about. Shaft types and pedastal types etc.

If anyone is interested i can track down the american distributor for them.

The shaft rockers are more stable the shaft interconnects all the rockers and uses their previous mounting points as triagulation on a bridge. you spread the load to each stud, so your not going to move, pull or break a stud, because it now has help from others.

if they will work im going to put them on a 400 sbc and run it on sreet and strip



Avery....stay away from these...use 1.5 or 1.6 specifically for the SBC heads you are using....using the 1.7's require extensive machining to get them to work...Duane, Rick, Mike, Curtis, Mel....but that is why you asked the question so you dont piss away good money.....you can buy good roller rockers for not a whole lot of money...Harland Sharp, Proform, even GM Performance parts has good ones that last and are cheaper.... \:D/ \:D/

here's my experiances,

ok i have run cranes and harland shraps in the past on my bbc motors. i have had absolutly no problems outta either brand.(knock on wood).

i know a guy who was running a set of lunati and had less than 30 runs on them and were junk(bbc). but he has issues w/cam walk so what's the real problem? cam walk!

i also know a guy who has a 572 in a dragster that runs 7.50's. he runs jesel shaft mounts. he broke two of them and replaced them during the course of the year. at the end of the year 10 outta 16 more were cracked!!!! called jesel and they said buy a new set. these were less than 2 yrs old on the whole set. now this motor was assembled by a reputable engine shop in my area. they were on a set of pro top line heads.

i'm not saying that there is a problem w/lunati or jesel parts just what i know of from these guys. like i said i run harland sharps and cranes and have no issues. but i also use a girdle.

why spend the money on shaft mounted rockers when you don't hafta? put the xtra money in something that's harder to change (rods,pistons, etc). i say put some sharps on it w/a stud girdle and you will be fine!!!
