Not sure if those will work on 92 heads... I know the 93 has roller rockers and 92 doesn't, but there might be something with the heads themselves thats different too IIRC, like the size of the rocker bolts.
Rocker bolt sizes are different between the 92 and 93.

Correct. Bolt sizes are different, so these rockers won't work on a 92.

The roller or not is not an issue. 93 non-roller heads are the same as 94/95 heads. It'* just the 92'* that are different.

So would I be able to use heads off a 93-95 to buy rockers for them and then bolt them on to my engine?

Yup, 93-95 heads will be a direct swap. Lucky you -you can use heads from either a L27 and S1 L67 -Series II and Series III peoples have to use the appropriate heads or swap their induction setup along with the heads.

Sounds like you keep telling yourself this rather than us, hehe.

Just went to a work lunch. Greyhare pulled in right before me. I pulled in with a car between us at the restaurant. He could FEEL my exhaust note through his closed windows.



She'* back.

Imagine sitting next to a freight train with your eyes closed and ear plugs. You can feel that subsonic rumble. It should be interesting when everything is settled in.

No KIDDING

Just curious, why do these new lifters tick so much? I mean you said you've been soakin em for quite some time and they get quiet when oil gets up in em...so yeah, what is it about em that has to break in first? Sounds like what my lifters do.
