Recently acquired a SR Fronty rocker arm engine. Seems there was some chat about a modern rocker arm and valve spring replacement. Any thoughts????

thnx

IF you have no luck, I have just started making a set of roller rockers for my Gemsa head. Iím getting the basic rockers waterjetted from 3/4Ē aluminum. I will install needle roller bearings on the shafts and hard steel roller tips. Iím salvaging the adjuster screws from some other old rocker arms. The shafts are being made from O1 drill rod

Howard, I dug around in my attic and found this Fronty head. I believe the rockers (marked EBP?) are from a 215 Ford 6. Looks like a pretty slick conversion. Sorry for the lousy picture, but I hope it gives you the idea.

tom,

thnx for the idea I will purchase one and compare. I will let you know if it works. My engine and head is totaly restored but I just want to have a couple of spares.

I plan on installing this combination in my barn fresh 1912 touring and entering the 2019 cross country trip from New York to Seattle.

thnx
