Anyone? I know that Marcus has one, but how do I get ahold of him?
use early Studebaker V-8 rockers,the rocker shaft diameter is identical and they're 1.8 to 1 ratio.
For those of you that don't already know, rocker arms from a Studebaker OHV six are the same as the V8 rockers. I picked up an assembly from a six in excellent condition for $5 and compared them to some V8 arms I already had.
The aftermarket ones are impossible to find, but 53 studebaker v8 ones fit...
what year six cylinder ones will work
I would say that any year OHV six rocker works. Studebaker was frugal about parts interchangeability, so I doubt that they ever changed the rockers on their six just for the sake of change. Since the arms have casting numbers on them, just compare any prospects to a V8 rocker and see if they match up. I'll look at the casting number later and post it.
I tried to look it up for you, but my Hollander happened to not include Stude. WTF
i was reading about that,now we need 4 sets of 6 cyl. rockers so we can make 3 sets of V-8 rockers!
