rocker arms?

Hey . . . I am somewhat new to the site (have been trolling for a couple of weeks) and would like to know what the deal with the rocker arms for the vulcan motor is.

I saw the stuffforyorranger site about the Rogue arms but was wondering if anything crosses over.

I thought I saw something awhile back about them being the same as a cleveland but I think they are a screw-in stud type.

Would the pedestal arms from a 5.0 work?

They are to an extent "adjustable" when using different thickness shims . . .

there the same as the 5.0.

morrana (i think) had a set of "drop-ins" offered but you can get a complete set for a 5.0 for cheaper from summit. i'm pretty sure someone makes a "bolt-on" full roller set also. if you buy them for the 5.0 you will have 4 extras lol

I have these, which are cool, but as arms go they aren't the strongest.

Don't try and put something together. Just order the set from stuffforyourranger.com and be done with it. All the work is done for you.

If I do anything, it will be "put together". I work at a shop here in the atlanta area building mustangs. I have a set of 1.7 scorpion rockers in my garage which is why I asked (off a friend's gt40 heads).

Just wanted to know if that worked . . .

I will also be having a foxbody driveshaft lengthened for it. I have had this frpp aluminum sitting around for a year now with no more projects. I finally have a use for this junk :D
