What sort of rockers are you using?

Hey what sort Roller rockers are you using? I'm looking at Comp cams/Crower/yella terra.
the engine will be singing to 8000rpm, any one using yella terra platinum race rockers? and taking it to 8000rpm and beyond? They seem so simple no girdles etc.

Re: What sort of rockers are you using?

I use Yella Terra roller rockers with 7/16 screw in studs. Been there since 2000 and has seen 7000rpm more times than i care to remember. I don't anything about yella terra platinum race rockers.

I've bought the YT platinums for the engine I'm building. The trunion size is much bigger than any other roller rocker I've seen, should be bullet-proof.
As you say, no girdles, no guide plates, etc is also an advantage. KISS (keep it simple, stupid).
If you need any photo's or dimensions, let me know.
Cheers.

Re: What sort of rockers are you using?

Im using the crane golds and no issues in daily use over 18mnts so far.
I will be using them on my next incarnation with a roller cam and 240lbseat 660lbopen spring pressures so that will be a better test of strength im sure!

Re: What sort of rockers are you using?

A friend is using the platinum rockers on a 351 that gets reved to 7000+. He's had no dramas at all.
I use Lunati roller rockers which are identical to the crane gold, just blue.

Cheers

Brett

Re: What sort of rockers are you using?

What's the going price for a set of Platinum series rockers?

Just stay away from those Yella Terra 5/16 bolt mounted RR's that use standard pedestals and not screw in studs.

Got my Crane Gold RR's NIB. But they're tried and proven. Just as a guide, you could get them new from the US for about AU$475 including postage.
