I have summit brand bolted on my rebuilds. Time will tell I guess. They look nice enough, come in some fancy packaging.

We shall see.

$400 for Crane gold is just out of control.

And on others you are simply paying for a name.

I know of a guy here locally who broke TWO comp (pro mag) rockers, a few hours on both when they went.

He gave up on them all together.

They had 300 hours on them. They were replaced soley because we were in there, for insurance. The rollers roll fine, no visible signs of wear. $150 takes 1 set. We called Crane when we replaced them. They said they dont make this exact rocker anymore. The part # they sent in its replacement is 13750. I was going to put them on E-Bay soon.
A little disclaimer... We all know how important rocker arms are for an engine. We all know what happens when they break. With that said, although they seem fine, they are used. NO guarantee..

never mind

I switched over to crane gold race roller rockers not the wide ones. Much better than summit.

Had you broken one of the summit brands?

Sure, I agree. Problem is, building a motor is one of the most NICKLE and DIME projects I have ever seen.

It's $200.00 for oil and filters, not to mention several $2,000 dollar parts orders, $1,500 in machine and head work, etc., etc.

Tried to save some coin where I could. Not everyone on this board has money coming out their ears.
