Shopping for stainless steel rocker arms.

Post  75truck on June 18th 2016, 3:51 pm

I'm building a 429 with spring pressure of 130 /330 and want a stainless roller rocker.

Any suggestions

Ford BB 460 1.73 7/16" Stainless Steel Roller Rocker Arms around $150 -250 on Ebay. Any good for this mild application? My springs are 130/330lbs

My 429 is .030 over flat top CJ type Sealed power Forged pistons with 9.8:1 compression. A Bullet 262 cam for torque in a 75 F250 truck.

Anyone running these with any luck.

How do Scorpions compare. I have a use set?

I wouldn't use them. Chinese junk IMO

Better off with scorpion or harlin sharp aluminum ones made in USA if that's your budget

PRW brand have served me well in the solid and hyd flat tappet deals.

Probably made in Chinee but the work well on the lower pressure apps.

I'm frugal and my crane golds have been working just fine for 30 years

If you are frugal and want a sufficient product, as IDT-572 suggested, use the PRW rockers.
