I am using the Proform Self Aligning roller rockers, and they are junk... the washers are getting worn (I only have 10,000 miles on them) and I have had to replace 2 of them the self aligning washer guides are getting bashed up. well most of them are still ok. But I am getting some clicking noises from the rockers or maybe just one or 2, its pretty loud and noticeable from inside the car, and you can hear it under the hood as well, but it only happens when you rev the engine. I replaced the pushrods thinking maybe one was bent. Could it be the slack between the guides?

When I got my heads the guys at trickflow told me not to use proform...they told me they aren't measured out properly.

Without some details it is hard to help. What type of heads are you using ? Do they have guide plates ? Why are you using self aligning rockers ? Unless you have a set of Vortec heads or another head that requires self aligning rockers, you should not be using them. That could be part of the problem. There are a lot of ProForm rockers out there running without any problems. It is not a good idea to "bash" a manufacturer without making absolutely certain that you have done everything correctly on your end.
