roller rockers
#1
runninpony 
Hi All! I've decided to go with rocker rollers for my 302 Windsor. What do you guys run for roller rockers? Which ones are decent or are junk? Which side of the rocker should the oiling hole be, I've seen roller rockers where oiling hole is on the roller side, others have hole on push rod side? Quality, Price...Made in USA perhaps! Thanks!

I have used Harland - Sharp brand roller rockers on my 69 Boss 302 for years. Trouble free.  Ed

The oil supply hole for an SBF, 335 or 385 series engine will always be on the pushrod side, as oil is fed up through the lifters.

I've run Crane Gold Race rocker arms on my 351Cs with great results. I've also heard excellent things about Sorpion and Yella Terra (Big $$).

Don't buy some no-name rocker. Had a friend who almost lost a freshly built Pontiac 455 to several failed cheapo rocker arms.

I've had trouble free results using Crane, Scorpion, Crower, Yella Terra, Ford Racing, and Dove. You will see small variations in Geometry from one manufacturer to another requiring push rod length to obtain optimal valve train geometry. Chuck

I have a set of CompCams Hi-Energy roller rockers in my 351C-2V to go along with the rest of my CompCams goodies (roller lifters, rods, and 274/274 .566" cam) and Crane 7/16" screw-in rocker studs - so far, so good.

What is the benefit? I have comp cams magnum rollers in my M code. Their web claims 15 to 30 up increase. How when the ratio remains at 1.72? 498 lift cam.

Friction reduction.

Less friction on the valve train (or any other part of the engine) is never a negative.  But, you're right: you won't see any significant power increases simply by eliminating friction in a single location.  That's why I went with a total package (roller "everything").
