Is there a Cheap (like <$100) option to get 1.7 ratio rocker arms?
Looking around on IFSJA I see the only easy/reliable 1.7 rocker arms for our AMC V8s seem to be Harland Sharp and Scorpion. Both are over $300 on Summit racing. I plan on removing my valve covers to paint them and install new gaskets when I do my intake and thought that might be a good time to do some 1.7 rockers (if they are cheap enough). I see posts here and there that talk about using Chevy or Ford rockers and the pros and cons of those but they are mostly talking about roller tips. I don't really care about roller tips but thought a little extra lift would help (especially with my new intake being installed).
Its not worth $300 for me to install them on a stock cam in an engine that never sees 5k RPM but if I could find some cheapie, bolt on steel rockers, I'd be game to try those...
