Hey guys, I'd like to see if anyone has a set of mechanical rocker arms and the associated rods for them that they wouldn't mind selling for a reasonable price. Obviously I'd like them to be in good shape. Just let me know what you have and what you'd like for them.

Thanks,

Allen

Thanks for chiming in Tim. Doing a bit of reading lead me to believe that running hydraulic rocker shafts would effect oil pressure. Have you not seen that as true? Also since your already here can you just verify for me that its ok to run mechanical rockers on a hydraulic cam? I've seen you say so in a past thread but it doesn't hurt to verify for peace of mind. Thanks for all your knowledge!

I have a set that I used and worked fine but went back to hydraulic when I decided I wanted to keep my car mostly stock..  What do you think is reasonable?
