Stock rockers will cost you a small fortune, I sold a set 4 or 5 years ago and got $1500 if a remember right. New you have Jesel, W & W, Miller Engineering & TD. All but Miller require plugging the stock stud holes and drilling and tapping new holes, also Miller is the only design that will fit under the stock valve covers. Any of the above will cost you $1800 and up.

When I first built my first Boss engine I designed and built my own roller rockers based on Jesels design, the stands are steel and the rockers are billet 7075. They will fit under the stock valve covers.



After I really started leaning on the engine I made a new set with all of Jesels weak area's removed, these will not fit under the stock valve covers.

WOW that is one sweet looking set up :shock: :D How much work was it to make your own rockers? I have a good friend with cnc machine center that with a sample or plans could build them. Do you have a used pair that I
could get? Thanks Tom

Tom,

I do have 11 or 12 pairs of the gold anodized rockers above, that includes stands, shims, rockers & pushrods, I even have the fixtures needed for drilling and taping the new holes. I have a Hampton blower manifold too. PM if you're interested.
