These were Harland Sharp. The eBay rockers are working fine on the truck.

So this happened in the Bu. I see they're not full shaft rockers. But still, Harland-Sharp? Not a good thing! Never had problem with regular rocker studs in my Poncho's. But did have problem with rocker shafts in my 425 Buicks.

I had rocker shaft on a Buick aluminum 215. Just thought I’d add something

Glad you found your answer - but what was the question?

bro. “curious,” d.
Had a question about the rockers but then seen the photos. Glad too, cause my ? was a doozie, I was not sure if my delete functioned worked or not. But now I know.

I got the new rockers installed. The ‘ticky’ lifter on the passenger side is still ‘ticky’. I put 3/4 turn on the adjuster instead of 1/2 but still ‘ticky’. Harland Sharp sent new parts for the demolished rockers. I’ll put them on the truck for a while with a set of PAC 1219 beehive springs. That will bump my lift from 0.508” to 0.547”.

They are 1.75:1. Gross valve lift is 0.618". The truck runs good but man the Malibu is wayyyyy faster.

Those are full shaft, right? The others didn't look like it. Or they broke apart at the mountings?

Hopefully I get back to the track in the next couple of weeks to see how last winter’s suspension mods work along with the slicks.

Once it’s dialed in then on to the next mod. I finally found a steel roller cam core and it’s being ground now. Current lift is 0.608”. New is 0.662”. Current duration is 235/243. New is 256/256. I ordered it 110+4 LSA. Should haul ass.

Too bad you had to regrind it. Looked like it would have worked on my blower motor "REAL GOOD".
