Rebuilding my 292, and was cleaning up the rockers.  I have a mixed batch, 5 of the high lift and 11 regular rockers.  Anybody have 3 of the high lift versions they want to get rid of?  I will just run them on the intakes.  Or if you have 11, I could make a high lift set.  Let me know what you need for them.

Thanks
Paul

Ogasman;  It's often not finding them, as it is finding ones that aren't badly scored or so worn that they rock noticeably on the shaft. Patience, things seem fairly slow on here recently, good luck.. New shafts are recommended also..

Ogasman, did you find any rockers?  What are your plans?  Are you going to have them rebuilt?  I probably have some, but they are used and probably marginal in their bores.  Maybe useable, maybe need re-bushed.

I have a couple coming my way.  Probably have enough for a half set, but a couple of mine are OK but not great.  It would be great to get a full set.  Who do you have rebuild / re-bush the rockers?  I have an old school machinist do my work.  I took a bad rocker that I have to him, he said he didn't have the equipment to re-bush them.

Thanks

I have not had any rockers rebuilt, but Rocker Arm Specialties have been doing them for years.  They are in California.  If you are going to have them rebuilt, I can probably round up enough to complete your set.

Thanks  John
  Let me give RAS a call on Monday and get a quote to re-bush them.  I hate to have you go to the trouble to dig them up for me if the re-bush is too expensive. I appreciate the help.

Thanks

Paul, I don't know what you intend to use the engine for, but the difference between 1.43 and 1.54 rockers amounts to about .030 valve lift.  On a street engine that rarely sees more than 3500 rpm, I doubt if you could feel the difference in the seat of your pants.  A competition engine probably would know the difference.  If you want to brag about having the high lift rockers, then go for it.  If rebuilding cost is high, you may want to consider 1.6 roller tip rockers as replacement.

Who sells the Y-block roller rockers? There is no y-block application listed on Harland Sharp's website.

Ted Eaton is the only place you can get Harland Sharp rockers for the Ford Y-Block.
