Re: Rocker Failure

I used to break intake rockers just like that in my first car. would be driving down the road and have it pop back through the carb! I was told to put a new rocker on the exhaust and use the exhaust rocker to replace the intake.
Problem was galling. The rocker balls weren't getting enough oil due to a hi volume oil pump squirting the oil past the rocker ball!
I run Scorpion rollers now. But have also switched to a standard pump for all my engines.
