New Rocker Arms
The rocker arm situation
was a tough choice for me because on one hand, the stud mount rockers
have worked pretty good up until now. On the other hand, shaft mount
rockers are much better than stud mounts but the cost is out of reach
for most people. What's a guy to do?
While I was at Engine Supply we got on the subject of rocker arms,
what's good about this type and what's not so good about that type. One
thing lead to another and Mike told me that his good friend
Joe Sherman used a rocker
arm made by
YellaTerra and that he liked them.
Wait a minute...yellow what? I hadn't heard
of them before, good, bad or indifferent. Once I got home I did some research
on them and found out they look very much like the name brand ones,
had some nice features and cost half as much. I guess that's the good
new but the bad news was...yella who?
I called the company and asked some questions about their products
and the guy told me all about them. I told him that I'd think about it
for awhile and get back to them. This company is originally from
Australia and have been in the U.S. since 2007 and it seems they are
trying to make a name for themselves by offering their shaft mount
rockers for about half the cost of the other two big players. Two days
later I called back and placed my order.
