That's like the 20th time he's gone by today?"

    Billdoe You wont get any cash But they probably will trade you up to there gold series I have used them they are a nice piece, They came out with that series to compete with Crane. Good luck

Found 3 others the same way. the differnce is had to fight like hell with crane, and never used them since. that was in 1997 customer support is Important. Not saying there bad, just every body has problems its how you handle them that keeps your customers, Yours.
    sure, i agree with ya. i don't run the spring pressures most guys do either, so i'm fairly easy on em and have never had a failure in 14yrs of using the line on different motors. prob would be turned off of them myself if i got stuck with a set by crane , but so far so good. i do use alot of comp products and its really nice to hear them at least be stand up guys and take care of their customers.

    I think we both use MMSS for our machine work. Some of my rockers also have this side movement you mentioned. Mine are much older and have been ran a good long time tho- without failure (for whatever thats worth) Which is not much IMO, as are they just now getting ready to come apart?. I aquired these on a motor I did not buy them per-say. I have always used the Crower Enduro's and have never had a problem in some fairly serious motors. I may just put those away and buy some Crowers for the new motor I am almost done with for my car. In some way I am glad this post came up, not for your trouble, but it makes good sense to shelf those I have for now.....................

    If I've seen that once, I've seen it 20 times. I will NOT use those rockers. That has been my experience every tine I've used them; except they might be alright for a stock springed hydraulic cam set up. i personally think they are a waste of your hard earned money.

    Actually, No, I won't, as I have never used them.

    I WOULD HAVE used them, on a moderate-lift hydraulic setup (.565"), but, found a set of Hy-Tech's instead (at a great price used), had them overhauled, and spent a bit less than a set of new Pro Mags.

    I don't think there is any way MY setup could possibly break them.

    Just how "high-lift" is the setup you put them in bildoe? RPM and how heavy a springs?

    The springs on a .650" or .700" roller cam are a damn sight stronger than mine, which are pretty darned stout for a Hyd. setup, but mild compared to a lot of other stuff.

    yes the wear is on the one edge of the roller i think that happen when it started to sieze cause the geomitry was pretty good when it was set up it wasnt off anywhere . we did notice a couple rocker arms have a twisting motion to them which is alot more then some of the others . i bought a set of Stainless roller rockers to replace them with since i heard they were better by my engine builder .. .

    as to what size cam . im running a solid roller cam 0.722 int./0.722 exh. lift , Duration at 050 inch Lift: 276 int./284 exh. (link to cam)
    http://store.summitracing.com/partde...2&autoview=sku .. guy that set my motor up use to work for the Kendall top fuel funny car team as a mechanic and said he set the springs alil on the lighter side so it wasnt so hard on them for the kinda boating i planned on doing but yes they are stout springs
