Hello and thanks in advance for your help. I am building a 390 fe for my 66 fairlane and was wondering what is a good rocker set with out breaking the bank? The motor is bored .030 over with a 4.25 stroke. It has stock heads rebuilt.

Adding end stands to the stock setup is good for most flat tappet camshaft applications... As long as the rpm is 6000 or so, you should be fine.

Precision Oil Pumps has a LOT of FE specific parts. GOOD quality stuff... and not just oil pumps. Among the stuff he carries, are high quality end stands. He has made FE stuff forever... use to supply FPP (Ford Power Parts) if you remember them. Give him a call if you need advice for your specific application. He also sells rockers, stands, billet shafts, etc... depending on how wild the cam is and rpm range.

Main Site (click on Ford FE)

Here are the end stands:

Mike gave you good advice. Depending on the RPM and specs of your cam, you could get away with stock rockers, fresh replacement shafts with end stands. I will add stay away from the PRW or any non-name brand rocker. Geometry issues with the off brands and PRW has durability issues that are very random. Nice thing about Precision Oil Pumps design is it uses ball/ball rockers, which saves you quite a bit on the pushrod cost...in the end though, unless you just add stands and studs, don't expect it to be cheap

X2 on the POP end stands. Even stock rockers will hold up to about 600 lift with not too much issue. Over that you run into a whole host of other problems. Plus these are the same end stands that are part the roller rocker assembly if you want to upgrade.
