Roller Rockers Can I Just Fit Them ?
Posted 16 September 2019 - 02:54 PM
The question is can I just fit some roller rockers without having to do any adjustments apart from obviously valve clearances ?
Motor is a 1380 with MK 3 S head and swiftune SW5 cam.
I presume I would need 1.5 been looking at MED and Minisport any recommendations from you guys ?
Cheers for now!

...and they might hit your rocker cover.

I'd say, not really, unless the rocker shaft just happens to be at the correct height.
To get the best out of them, the upward angle of the rocker with the valve closed has got to be the same as the downward angle with the valve fully open.
As Ethel mentions, this means shimming or shaving the rocker pedestals, and hopefully when this has been done, there will be sufficient adjustment in the tappet screws.
