BOAT = BRING ON A NOTHER THOUSAND.
Actually, I wasn't one that asked, I just chimed in because I am in the process of complete rebuilds, of which I chose the summit rockers after research.

So, my mind was made up WELL before this OTHER guy asked the question.

Truth of the matter is, this whole conversation is very typical of the on line forums. Put it this way, if someone pays top dollar for something, you really think they are going to just say: "sure, go a ahead and save a bunch of cash, they cheaper part will probably work just fine for your application"

HELL NO! It's human nature. If I buy the absolute best (most expensive) of something I'd probably respond the same way, "anything else is JUNK, you really need to drop massive coin like I did to really be sure.............."

30 yrs 6 performance hulls in the triple digits,20 yrs running super chargers, thats typical online forums !!
I could give a rats a** buy the cheap made in china crap and lets see how they hold up..BTW I have learned the hard way,fast and cheap have no place in a marine engine of any HP. What amazes me is the same person that cheaps out on internal engine parts will spend 1,000 of$$$$ on a stereo system or some other bling and will B*tch about his new rebuild when it fails.
Most hardcore engine builders use what they now works and dont listen to the boat owner because his name is on that engine once he builds it. I dont agree with your research but the best of luck with the Few $$ ya saved.

Made in the USA or assembled in the USA.

My motors have the Crower alum and steel ones,Crane golds ,Lunita alum, and Harlem Sharps.Never broke any.

Thats like Crane lifter/tappets are assembled at Crane,someone like Eaton makes some of the parts/body's that go into building the tappet.

Also some may tell you its USA,how can you prove it?

Haven't come apart yet. I made it from the dock, two 25 minute runs, back to the dock.

So far so good.

[QUOTE=598Boat;2775250] I have since switched to Jesel. They are the best, but costly. The sportsman aren't good though so it all or nothing with them. QUOTE]


What's no good about the Jesel Sportsman Series? I am in the middle of a rebuild and was planning on using this system. Building 600ci with Dart pro one heads.

not saying what to do but scorpion does in fact make the summit rockers and they are 100% made in us. i bought some unmarked scorpions that i was unsure of and i talked to their tech guy for like 45 minutes, super nice people over there and if you research them some you will find that they are a very good company. not sure about summit versions but scorpions are waranteed for life. i am in the same boat as far as building on a budget so i know where you are coming from on this one.

I have had Scorpion Roller rockers on my engines for the last 9 years. (Me and the prior owner) I have ran the crap out of them and never had a failure. I have broken 3 ARP rocker studs on the exhaust side during that time, and still put the same Scorpion rocker back on. I was hesitant to put new scorpions on my new engines cause of all the chat on this site. Until I did a search and found this.

I have had good luck with them and will continue to use them.
