In my quest for an inexpensive roller rocker for 351C heads, I was trying to find pedestal roller rockers that would work.

Ford motorsport has a set; their only drawbacks are theyre 260 bucks (the crane conversion kit and a set of 7/16" stud type rockers are about 280), and their pedestal mount isnt integral with the fulcrum (why they did that I'll never know!!!)

Crane has a set of pedestal 1.7 rockers for 5.0's that is 170 bucks.....today I compared valvestem to fulcrum centerlines between 5.0 and 351C heads.....too far off /forums/images/icons/frown.gif

When I considered the prices of all my options, I decided to order the FMS 351C rockers...and if I ever break anything, I can still use a stock cleveland rocker in its place.....at least stock cleveland rockers can handle pretty large amounts of lift, though the spring pressures may flex them a tad.
