I might need some 1.7 ratio rockers?

I think I might need to replace my Miller roller rockers, 1.8 ratio, with 1.7's, maybe anyone interested in doing a trade? I've been trying to get a cam for my pulling truck with a max .650 lift. And not much is available for the 1.8 ratio.

Send a message via Yahoo to mudbogtom
Have you checked with Paul to see if he has any of the 1.7s available?

There isn't a huge "total" difference with a 1.7 compared to a 1.8, if I am doing the math right... looks like maybe .065".

CompCams has 4 roller lobe profiles from 254 to 270 @.050" with .364" lobe lift listed in their master lobe list for "Race ONLY Cheater" Hydraulic or Mechanical "tight lash" use.

TEN degrees should be added to those @.050" numbers for comparable sizing because they are "tight lash" lobe profiles when used with a solid roller.

I can get you a "custom" cam ground if you are serious.

Randy: I tried calling you today. But no answer. I'll try calling you later. I called Comp. Cams the other day and the tech. could not find anything. Crane came up with a couple cams. The tech at Crane Cams said we shouldn't be running our 460's over 5000 RPM. They never were meant to do that. Hmmm???? :shock: :shock:

Crane is run by idiots


I run one of their cams way back broke retainer @9500rpm on the first run and called them, they said yes they have a great warranty and then explained if I started the engine the warranty was void ! :shock: so that brought up a question what good is a cam if you don't run it???


never again
