Does Anybody Still Sell the 1.6 or 1.7 Roller Rockers?

Hey, sorry for the long absence. Life sucks sometimes. The turd finally has reached the point of barely running since I'm losing compression on two cylinders now. So I just bought a new set of heads but I'd like to change the rocker arms while I'm in there. I see Tom Morano sells the 1.8's but that requires (I assume) the heavier valve springs. Can I still get 1.6's or 1.7's anywhere? Thanks.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...K%3AMEWAX%3AIT This company seems to be priced well. I can port and polish them myself at work, I just have the exhaust seat problem which I can do nothing about.
