Re: rockers for chi heads

Thanks...I ask b/c I've never worked with cleveland style heads before so I don't know....

but here's what i look to build....

I have a 9.2 motorsport block
3.500 Bryant crank
6.200 Carrillo rods
4.040 Probe flattop pistons

I'm thinking I want to put this shortblock back together with a set of 225CHI heads, roller cam, and some intake for one of my street cars. about 10.7ish:1

the shortblock was an arca motor (minus the probe pistons)

I'm new to the clev-headed thing but I want to get into it...

so my first question was about the valvetrain....which...no offense xdclevo but wasn't answered....not your fault, I myself just don't know....

I guess most clev heads were pedestal mount but can be made stud mount...and aftermarket heads are already stud mount???

My next question is...is there a difference in the valve angles of a c3 yates and a clev? with everything else aside will a clev piston work with a yates head?

thanks and any help is appreciated

Re: rockers for chi heads

CHI heads are stud mount, BUT you can order them with pedastal mounts instead for free of charge if you wish. I have no idea why you would want to do that though, as I don't believe you can run near as big of cam with pedastals.
