I have tried several times a few months ago with no luck, so I had already bought some crane rockers from summit,I'll make up my own adjustable length pushrod and see if I can make it work on another junk 3.0 I have before I try them in the truck again. I just went through the engine in my ranger( old one threw a rod, that's how I bought it)and they would not work. That's what I'm going to try next but I don't know when I'll get to it. I will post results good or bad when I actually do it

He should at least provide us the machining details so we can tackle it ourselves since he isn't making them anymore.

Why run 1.7 when you can run 1.8 roller rockers and get more Hp &ft pounds of torque
1.7 Chinese roller rockers only give you an extra 30 thousand lift compared to the 1.8 roller rocker wich is American built gives you 60 thousand more lift then stock 1.6 rockers

Morana racing did sell the 1.7 roller rockers for a few months until new Intel was gathered they discontinued the product and started to sell the 1.8 roller rockers wich were better quality and performance, and offer an American lifetime warrant.


listed here is a dyno test wich the facts

http://moranav6racing.com/downloads/...0SHEET%202.jpg



The reason for the product change was the history of the 1.7 Chinese roller rockers getting noisy around 15,000-18,000 miles.


if any one still is interested in the 1.7 roller rockers or 1.8 roller rockers and bolt on adjustable. they are available from an Americana company with a life time warranty Tom Morana Racing Engines still has them for sale




A true Patriot would purchase and American product and be proud

Hello Tom,

Good to see you on the forum.

A few members here were concerned about the quality control on your rocker mounts. They said the machining was off quite a bit from part to part.

Is this a problem from the past that we no longer need to be concerned with?

I would imagine so.

hello

thanks for the warm welcome.

yes there was an issue with the roller rockers in the past , how ever we have discontinued any purchasing from the Chinese company for any roller rockers.

we now supply an American brand roller rocker that has a lifetime Greentree.
wich have no history of being off on measurements.


1.7 are $350 us
1.8 are $400 us

How much for a kit

Just wondering how much for the kit. Sounds like it's pretty bullet proof. And from all my research it sounds that going with the 1.7 is the best way

I was in touch with Tom a month or so ago for upper and lower intakes. With racing season started now or soon up here, he's likely to be busy. I'm now kicking myself for not having the cash to push the go button on the intakes, timing chain and roller-rockers.

So here's what has been done.
I took my truck back apart and went through the whole rocker assembly and found that there were variances in the Morana rocker mounts. So i have done my homework and with the help of a local engine builder/machinist i have put together and tested a bolt on 1.7 Roller Rocker kit for the Ranger 3.0L.
The 1.7 rocker arms raise your lift at valve from .416" to .442" and let the 3.0 make better torque down low and more power up high in the rev range.

These kits require no tapping of threads and are a simple bolt on.

What I want to know is there a interest out there for these kits.
I would sell direct for $280 or i will be listing on my E-bay store for $310 and i am not just talking i have several kits ready to go now.

Like i have said before i ran a kit very similar to this for about 100,000 miles with no problems.
I just think my quality control would be a lot better and my prices lower. I paid about $400 to get my kit to me from Canada

Just wanted to see what you 3.0 guys think?

Here's a few pics of one of my roller rocker arm assembly's next to a factory rocker arm.


. Was wondering if these are still available somewhere... Thx
