Chinese copy rockers

Recommended Posts

Interesting. What did you use for break in lube?

They don't look that bad, but they do look like they weren't faced properly.

I don't remember, rock oil 10w40 semi maybe. I checked the daylight between these and the camshaft and there's still a long way to go.

I thought of getting these reground when doing the rebore but I think I'll stick with the lighter stock rockers.

hard to tell but the bluing looks like it ran without oil ?

That's probably the light.

Did you use a break in grease? I went thru a full tube of moly assembly lube last year alone, just a few engines LOL.

I've had a few rockers reground, but only OEs. I'm not sure if I trust the aftermarket jobbers.

Nope, just lathered it in oil and made sure the cam pocket was brimmed with oil. Don't see the point in molygrease unless if you're doing a dry build.

That was back then though when I didn't have any moly, now I have a metric &%$#@!tonne of the stuff (need to molylube all the splines on my airhead) I oil and grease.

I lather the cam and rockers religiously. If the engine has sat for more than a year or I replace any parts in the valve train, I coat it liberally. Seen too many good motors go down the drain from skipping this simple step. Hell, when I got my pit bike motor for my mini-quad, I pulled the head and coated the rockers and cam with assembly lube. Better safe than sorry.
