Rocker Geometry.....

We are working with a mfg to make an Intake rocker and an Exhaust rocker which will allow for proper rocker geometry on BBC. These will be a stud mount rocker kit with 8 intakes and 8 exhaust.

They will be available from Straub Tech and Lewis Racing.

Why is it we never have time or money to do it the right way in the beginning but we always have time and money to do it over again?

Re: Rocker Geometry.....

anybody building a BB with stud mount rockers should be interested in these. Been a long time come coming. With the people involved they should be excellent.

Re: Rocker Geometry.....

But doesn't it really depend on the cylinder head that's being used?

Head and valve length but since the majority of the stuff we do is with AFR and Canfield we will have the rockers to work with these heads.
