Hey guys. My new 1.6 roller rockers seem pretty noisy. I've checked and readjusted them and they are adjusted properly. They aren't ticking or clacking, just noisier than i had expected. A friend said he had heard that all roller rockers are pretty noisy. Anyone have comments on theirs?

My friend put stainless steel rockers on his 69 Z/28, they are quite a bit quieter than the stock rockers, he has the solid lifter cam.

My experience is that roller rockers are quieter than any standard rocker under the same conditions (ie: solid cam VS hydraulic, etc.) I had one noisy one on my 383 but I found one that was loose! Good Luck!

Shouldn't make any more noise than the stock stamped ones, assuming they're properly adjusted. I've used both Crane and CC Magnums on several engines (with hydraulic lifters), and they weren't any noisier than stock.
