Question about ProComp roller rockers

Anyone familiar with ProComp rockers? They are selling on eBay cheaper than I can buy Harland Sharp from Summit. They are advertised as originating in Australia. Good parts? Or skip? Thanks for your opinion.

Re: Question about ProComp roller rockers

http://www.procompelectronics.com/ <--thats their AU website but they do have US distributors. I've been running one of their ignition control boxes to see what their like. It's a hell of a lot better than a stock electronic ignition.

I'd think their RR's would be a quality product for the $.

Re: Question about ProComp roller rockers

Don't know about the roller rockers, but if it's anything like their ignition gear they will be total crap.I have tried their dizzy & ignition box setup plus their ready to run dizzy & was let down badly by the perfomance.Changed to a MSD ready to run dizzy & have not looked back.

Re: Question about ProComp roller rockers

Thanks everyone! You don't get something for nothing, and considering the expense and effort to get stuff from there to here - $150 for rockers just seemed too good and too cheap. I'll go with the Harland as originally planned.

Re: Question about ProComp roller rockers

Especially when a few thousand dollar motor is at stake, makes the extra few hundred look not so bad as insurance.

Are these the distributors from a few years back that spewed oil into them from the bottomend? Cool name, maybe not so cool quality!!

Re: Question about ProComp roller rockers

You cant beat the MSD as far as easiness of advance adjustments, as the advance mechanism is on top - you dont need to strip 1/2 the dizzy to change springs.
