I bought a set of crane roller rockers from a guy on ebay that said they were 1.6 but when I tried to get a little info on them, the number on the rockers wouldn't come up anywhere. I talked to the tech guy at summit and although they had crane cams imbossed on them he claimed they weren't a crane rocker. The number was not a crane number. I figured that seeing as they were a few years old (but never used) that the numbers were different. So I sent the guy a pic of them and he said that they were made by crane for ford to go on the 93 cobra and also that they are 1.7 instead of 1.6 like the guy claimed they were. hence, watch what you buy on ebay. this guy apparently didn't know what he had. Not to mention I had no contact from him for 8 days, and then it took another week and a half to get them. crap, rambling. anyway, whats the difference lift wise between the 2. the cam I'm going with is 500 lift w/1.6 rockers. Also if anyone has any info on these rockers(#F3ZE-6529-AB) let me know. thanks a bunch.
The 1.6 moves the valve a distance that equals the lift measurement of the
cam, times 1.6. So the 1.7 opens it a little bit farther. Better use some
clay, if noone can confirm for sure that they will work with your cam, heads

I run 1.7 Crane non adjustable roller rockers on gtX heads with a .512 cam. I like it except for the fact push rod length has to be adjusted not the rockers. PITA to setup. The extra lift helps with the smaller valve size in my case.
i have an 89 coupe lx with 47000 orig mile and iam looking to get the cam sound out of the stock cam with out opening the motor up i was told that all i have to do is put 1.7 roller rocker on it and it will give me that sound will it work and do i have to worry about valve to piston clearents so if any one cane help that would be great thanks the geeman.......
I put 1.7 rockers in a 300 six, as it is a cheap power adder for that engine.
The down side is the power band moved up the tack and it lacks smooth cruise at low rpm.
