I'm thinking about slapping on a set of these rockers...
I know it'll increase the cam lift some...I've always heard,get a cam with the most lift and the least duration for a driver...
Anyone ever try the 1.7 ratio non-adjustable bolt downs from Crane?
What could I expect from them besides decreased piston/valve clearance?
Thanks,
P.Tucker

Best bolt on for a stock 5.0 HO. Great results especially on speed density cars.
