I recently bought a set of T & D's for a big block BUT they are not a direct bolt on for my heads. I could save them and shop for heads, but is it worth the effort? Sell them on Ebay?
I have had zero problems with my 3/8th stud mounted rocker arm set up thus far. The heads these things fit are $$$$. C460's I think. Does anyone here run a set of these? Opinions please.

They are the lightest, strongest, most precise rockers made. I use them exclusivly on all of MM's engines. If you aren't seeing much over 6500 RPM their may be little benifit as far as weight goes, but their precision ratio gives you all the cam that you actually have.

Don't you have 7/16" studs?

Jerry,

What studs are you using in your heads? I have gone to the 7202 SRP. The standard stud Ford uses is too short in my opinion.

Also, the shaft rockers for the C460 heads....post them over at the 385 Forum and see if you get a bite over there...

Larry, I may hang on to them for a while. the studs I use are ARP. They have to be extra long to go through the stud girdle.
Thanks!

Jerry,
I run a set of SVO shafts (made by Crane I think) on my C-460s. I wish I had shafts when I ran A heads. If you run an aggresive cam the stud mount rockers always gained lash on me due to the nuts getting pounded by the rocker fulcrum unless you load it with one of those spring deals. Overall When you figure in a good girdle the shaft mounts are not that much more.
Later,
Mark
