That's about a .022 hole on the top of ALL ROCKERS ARMS. Run your fingers over ALL the wear surfaces. A small amount of wear is ok. But use some commen sense and replace parts that worn out. Here's something you should take notice of........the intake FOLLOWERS are more likely to be worn more. That is because  the Jet Valves apply MORE LOAD.  wink.gif

Easier, smarter and it's FREE. A hack-saw and a mill file coverts your intake rocker. The lighter the part, the higher it will rev.

The exhaust rocker can be used in place of the intake rocker. The oil is a controlled amount, the same or less as the exhaust shaft gives. Where you need oil is right there too. Especially on a performance engine with higher pressure valve springs. That extra oil will help, and doesn't just spray around down there uncontrolled. It dumps directly on the lobe where you want it.

The hole in the EXHAUST ROCKER does not line up with a OIL PORT in the shaft at all. So maybe the word "UNCONTROLLED" is not the best word to use. The hole in the rocker MIGHT allow oil to DRIP from that hole. It won't be under any REAL pressure. But you should NEVER USE a "USED" rocker arm in another location. Both the shafts and the rocker WEAR IN TOGETHER. That's why you number them......to put them back where they came from. By switching there locations.........you COULD create a FRICTION PROBLEM. There's also another more serious problem. The cam FOLLOWER SURFACE has WORN-IN with the CAM. Switching theses parts CAN flatten out a CAM because you just REVERSED THE DIRECTION OF WEAR. wink.gif So if you WANT to use exhaust rockers..........you should probably buy new ones. These are only suggestions from a professional race motor builder. Your cam lobes are the HIGHEST FRICTION AREA IN ANY ENGINE.

Special 10mm studs and nuts for the top row. 8mm longer ones for the bottom row that will give you a few more threads. I think your exhaust stud problems are history.  8)
