Hi,

Currently rebuilding my FE 390. Staying with the stock 2bbl for now and an RV cam (Elgin 966P) and need to know what to do with my rocker set up. The shafts look terrible with deep scratches all over them and will need to be replaced. The rockers have visible wear where resting against the shaft and where meeting the valve. How do I tell if they are ok to use again?

Cheers!

If they are even questionable the junk them. They aren't worth messing with. The cost of machining and rebushing them. Geez. Go to your local junk yard and find some decent rockers. Hell 2 sets. They are still pretty easy to find. You can also eBay some very cheap. Worse case, you can go online and search for isky rockers. They have some high strength reproduction rockers and shafts. Also look at precision oil pumps or erson for upgraded roller rockers.
