440 Source Roller rockers

I just got my rocker arms set up on my 440. I am sure glad that i did such a good job with the stem hieghts in these heads. I had to order shorter push rods due to the fact i milled .010 off the deck and .005 off the heads. The rocker arms where best quilty for the price i have found. 440 source was right on the ball about getting them to me. If you ever want to have adjustable full roller rockers these are the way to go

The rockers are alluminum alloy, the shafts are made from hardened steel. I had to buy custom made push rods. Make sure that if you buy them that you sand the shims becuase they use a press to mass produce the shims. If you mic them out of the box they will read .021 after you sand down the edges, mic they again and you will see that they are now .015. I spent alot of time and pression blued the valve stem to make sure that the roller stayed in the center of the steam. IF they are off it will cause premature vavle guide wear. Good luck and if you need help getting them set up i am on here alot

I would pull the valve covers every once in a while to inspect them. I read a post on anther site that some people had the pin come loose that holds the roller tip in place and the roller fell off the rocker. This then makes the rocker a pitch fork that will eventully loosen the valve keepers causing a dropped valve. The photos of what happened to the cylinder weren't pretty. I was planning on running their roller rocker setup but went with the stock stamped steel rockers after I read that thread. Just a heads up.

I too have heard "things" about the 440 source roller rockers on other forums. A close eye is warranted.

Only thing I can report to this date is that they are noisy...I have run their 1.6 ratio rockers for over a year now...I hammer on it every weekend and have had no failure...if I had to do it over again I would have gone with some Harland Sharps..

I peruse a post on anther destination that some folks had the pin come detached that keeps the roller tip in spot and the roller tumbled off the rocker. This then makes the rocker a pitch fork that will eventually relax the valve attendants creating a dropped valve.
