  1. 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.

    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
