Anyone ever use the Comp Cams Aluminum rockers made for the Ford heads. The ones with adjustable pushrod seats?

Good or bad? Should I use stock push rods or do I need something stronger? I now have a 222 .498 cam, these are 1.7 rockers.

Thanks,

They are OK. Comp does not make them. They just package them.

I just used Comps Magnum roller tips (1.62 self centering) and stock pushrods with a Lunati Bracket II cam kit (230 dur./.512 lift). The mostly stock 289 engine ran great and never let down in 5 yrs and over 100 6000-7000 rpm passes. I think 1.7 alum. rockers and special pushrods are overkill on a cam at that level, but wouldn't hurt.

I have pro magnums on my engine. My only comparison is stock, but they seem to be high quality pieces. Any opinion on these, Alex?

Can I use stock pushrods? Who does make them then???

BTW, I bought these because they are 1.7 ratio, and I got them for less than the Magnums.

Thanks

Yes you can use stock push rods. I like the Magnums also.

These are made by Dove...

I have a set on my engine. They have been on there for around 10 years of 7k rpm abuse, and have never given me any problems.

I give them a excellent rating!

Good Luck!

The 1.7 rockers will effectively increase the lift to .529" and duration by about 2 degrees. You will need to check for coil bind and make sure the retainers don't hit the seals at full lift. You also need springs that yeild about 115-120 lbs on the seat if you don't already have them.

Thanks for the help guys. Like I said I got what I think is a great deal on them ($125). I am planning to go with the Trick Flow set. They are supposed to be good for .542 lift and fit right on the stock E7 heads. I am pretty sure the spring setup I have would work (not stock) but I want to get rid of the stock 2pc retainers, they scare the heck out of me.

Can't wait to get another piece to the winter warm up puzzle. Just need the springs and NOS now. Come on Summer!!!

Sounds like a good plan! Hope the rockers work out for you.
