A guy at Summit's engine shop did these. Ford sb rockers iirc. The square blocks between the pairs keep them aligned. Iirc, he cut .300" off of the head bosses.

Potter made one like that in 2000..

Never heard anything about it after that but it looked like a idea that would work

I opened the push rod holes & milled the bosses at the same time. Don't remember the details, but followed the "destructions " from Potter at the time...
I need a bigger cam ! :D

I have a pair of those Potter steel bars. I also have some SBF roller rockers. Do I need custom pushrods? What rocker studs do I buy?
