hey guys, took the rocker cover off to replace it with another one, and i saw the rocker arm had a chip and a crack in it..
the head and rocker gear lifters etc were all from mikes dynotuning. i highly recommend you dont purchase anything from there, ive just about had a problem with everything on the head and i paid top dollar for it.

has anyone else experienced a broken rocker arm?
i want to buy just the rocker arm with out having to purchase all the rocker gear aswell.

you'll have better luck finding someone with a old motor that you can pinch the rocker gear off.

I have a few sets of rockers, how many rocker arms do you need? and also, what motor is it? I've got some rockers in pieces that i was going to clean up for another motor, but dunno if I can be bothered doing it, make me a offer on rocker arms, don't want much for them ..
