I have a bad lifter and I am wanting to replace the lifters,pushrods,and maybe put a set of roller rocker arms, the lifters are Crane fast bleed lifters,with Crane push rods ( stock lenght)
i have a mild cam in the 350 right now So the qeustion is what kind of valve springs should i use. and what all do i need to install the roller rocker arms. Thanks for the help. Jimwashere [img]graemlins/clonk.gif[/img]

Roller rockers shouldn't require a spring change unless you are changing rocker ratio and then only if the change causes a geometry change or a bind. I would shine the roller rockers and use the money on a cam to go with the new lifters. I'm not saying you can't put new lifters on an old cam but this is the perfect time to wake up your mill a bit. There's also a comfort zone in starting with new parts as opposed to worrying in the new lifters will seat on the old cam.

I have to agree with Dennis on this one. I would get a new cam and lifters and either buy the springs recommended for the cam or have yours checked to see if they're compatible. [img]graemlins/thumbsup.gif[/img]
