V-Drive 4 ever
just currious if anyone else has had a problem with Comp Cams Pro Magnum roller rockers before . my engine has about 8-9 trips out on it so far with maybe 8-10 hrs on it total . motor has never hick-up'd or had any problems before ever . then yesterday at CFW after making a few adjustment tests on the hull . moving motor forward and adj. cav plates .. while checking out how it rode i noticed a slight mis in the engine and within 10 seconds later a pop pop and the motor lost power . i thought i might have had an ignition failure but the popping thru the carb led me to pull tha valve covers and find the rocker arm in this shape in the pic below ... motor is a chevy 454 solid roller cam with a big lift . after talking to an engine builder he seems to think the bearing in the rocker arm on the shaft wasnt getting oiled enough and siezed up . just currious if anyone has run into this before or what . i went with comp cams rockers cause i have heard nothing but good about them .. anyone have any input on this? this happen at around 5000rpm . was running it Hard last week pulling into the 7000rpm range and engine never once showed a sign of a failure bout to happen . this happen when i was babying the motor giving someone a ride . ... was no signs of damage to anything else in the motor . valve seems fine (havent pulled head) lash cap shows alil wear due to this happening and push rod is in perfect shape still.. so im wondering put a new rocker on fish the pieces out of oil pan and run it again or what??
