Ok im looking into doing a head swap and along with that im wanting to put 1.6 roller rockers on also. my question is how do i go about setting and adjusting the roller rockers and were is a good place to get new valve cover since i know the stockers wont work with the new 1.6's
thanks reggie for all the great advise this should help out great now for the 1.7 rollers would i need new covers i seen some were on later model stangs (early 80's) they actually came with 1.7?)
You can put roller rockers on a stock engine, no problem.
You would still use the stock diameter rods, which are 5/16. Just get hardened rods instead of stock replacements or even worse, the stock rods. Stock rods will bend... save yourself a headache and get the right rods the first time.
