Hey Guys, Building a 408 magnum block. I would like to stay with shaft rockers. Any thoughts on a reliable way to oil the shaft rockers?
It seems that Harland Sharp makes rockers that oil through the pushrods but that is another 900 bucks. I already have the la style through shaft oiling H S rocker setup. Hoping to use those.Hollow pushrods with oiling holes might work but, I am unsure if that would be sufficient to oil the rocker to shaft surface or not. It works for stud mounted rockers, shaft mounted maybe not?
The Magnum blocks have the oil passage bosses but they aren't drilled (from what I've read). Drilling them would work but some mods to the cam and bearings would be needed to allow oil to pass through.
FUN! Maybe give a Hellcat a run for its money drive to church and the dragstrip.With that much duration @ 0.050" the 3200-3500 stall isn't going to cut it. You might want to re-think the 3.91 as well.
So here is a slightly different way of looking at it: what's your intended use?
So heed Oldiron440's advice, while the 4500-5000 converter stall speed may seem flat-out crazy...consider that you want your motor to be ON the second you punch that pedal!FUN! Maybe give a Hellcat a run for its money drive to church and the dragstrip.
That's a lot of it too. And now, at least here... these guys want to turn their 1/4 mile tracks into 1/8 mile... or 1/4 mile for a while, then 1/8 mile. We're switching gears a lot with this stuff. What's your 0-60? Your speed at the traps? E.T? What class? How many gears? But what you top out at is a BIG DEAL. Your home track is tooI'd choose the gear by quarter mile top speed if your going to run it.
