You already have roller rockers. What a savings, eh? Welcome to the world of PERFORMANCE built stock motors. You also have roller lifters.

Happy?

I think the rocker retainers are different, but your tapped holes in the head might be the same thread pattern. If so, just grab the rockers and retainers

We have a member with a motor sitting in his garage on a stand.......he changed it out for a coil pack........not saying who, but I wonder if you could talk him out of his rockers

They'd be pretty cheap at a junkyard, if they'd let you part out the heads. They might make you buy the whole head to get at the valvetrain. Hector and I can tell you how spendy that can be.

Yep. 93 was the first year. I found this out first hand when changing the head gaskets. willwren was pretty surprised about that.

I'd still like to see under the covers on a 92. Just to be sure. How sure are you on this one Jr?

BTW Jr, what happened to your stars? Someone **** on them? They're the wrong color

I am going to try and fit LT1 rockers onto my ported and polished heads since they are aluminum and have roller tips for more power. Should fit.
