I got the Comp Cams Roller Rockers I bought off ebay today. They were supposed to be for Ford Pedestal mount heads with adjustable pushrod seats. They wound up being standard 1.7 aluminum Roller Rockers.

So now I am trying to determine if I can use them.

Right now I have some studs from Comp Cams in my E7 heads. They have 5/16 threads into the heads and 3/8 for the rocker arms. I am thinking of putting guide plates under them. The guy from Comp Cams told me tonight that would not work as I would need to machine the thickness of the guide plate from the boss that the stud screws into. I am thinking that if I need more adjustment from the arms I could instead machine the thickness of the guide plate from the shoulder of the 5/16 end of the stud. Does this make sense? Would it work?

The guy is being good about it and said he will refund the money if I want, but if I can use these I would like to.

Let me know what you think, or have seen to make these work.

Thanks,
B-loose

Crane makes a conversion system which incorperates guide plates that some people do not like. I happen to use them and have had good luck with it and use it on one of our 5.0 302 stocker engines. We stock it. The part number is 36655-16 and sells for $90.

Thanks Alex,

I looked them up on Crane's web site. From the way their kit looks I think I can get away with using guide plates with my present studs. I will check it out. I don't like the non-competition denotation of the Crane set up. But, It looks like that would do the trick.

If this is the route I go I will definitely get them from you.

Thanks,
