I just got my roller rockers in the mail yesterday and I was wandering if anyone know how much you are supposed to tourqe the bolts down to? Also I just unbolt and remove the old ones and just bolt the new ones up right? I dont need to put oil on anything or anything like that?

Just unbolt and remove the old ones and bolt on the new ones.

I just installed HS 1.7s yesterday. Not as easy as I thought it would be but some people would say that I'm slightly physically handicap. All I done was torque them down to 30Fps and put a little a$$embly lube on them. The valve covers have to be snaked a little bit to get them out but not too bad. All in all I think they are worth it. I can feel the extra torque on the bottom end of the RPM range, which is what I was hoping for.

i don't know if the kits tells you to but i would soak the rockers in some oil for a couple minutes before you put them on so that the bearings in the arms have oil in them at startup and don't have to wait for oil to get up there. just my .02

The write up says to put a$$embly lube on them before you install them. So I picked up some of that while I was at auto zone getting the valve cover gaskets.

Hookie: did it produce any 'lope' effect at idle?

cool. I will eventually be doing this upgrade and didn't know if it would have any ill effects on the idle.
Glad to hear it makes enough of a difference to notice via 'seat of the pants' testing.

Where did you guys get your rrs. What kind and how much? I found some Harland SHarps for 350 + shipping on summit racing, but they are backordered. Is that the best price? Any ideas

Hookie: got a ? I read a while back about one of the guys on here installing some HS RR on their rig, and they had to remove them due to play in the timing chain a$$embly.
Is your valve train all original? Just wondering...if it works on your truck with 147,000 miles, it should work on mine with 104,000.

UP at the top there is a banner sometimes that says southeastperformance.com. Click on it to go to his website and sned john mercedes a email. Mine were $330 shipped. He is a great guy to deal with and will hook you up.

SO the baffles will need to be modified? I am doing the install right now and I just got the passenger side valve cover off and the baffles will not come out of the covers. So do I need to cut them out with a dremel for clearance or will they be ok??

I did nothing to modify my Baffles....They will clear...Just swap out the rockers and torque them down....it really is that simple!
