Comp Cams Rocker question

283 Solid lifter cam, Comp Cams 1.52 roller tip steel rockers. Im putting this 283 back together, while checking pushrod length I notice the rockers slightly blued. Exhaust worse than intakes but overall they are blued. Not really any galling inside and the rocker balls look ok. Is this something I should be worried about? I only have a couple of runs on these. I ll try to post a couple of pictures, but been having trouble lately.

yes, they are not getting enough oil..
ball and socket type need oil and oil with zinc..
I'd not run the blued ones..
check on how much oil there are receiving, and I'm guessing the balls under the nut have grooves right,, not solid faced..
call comp. you might get by ,by putting them on the intake side..
I'm betting on deep6,
good luck

Ok, I couldnt post the pictures to here but I did download to Youtube (go figure) Here is the link. No oil restricters and been running the Brad Penn 20-50. Like I said more on the exhaust side than the intake. The grooved balls look good No discolorization
