Man o Man you cheby guys are lucky, I wish I could just get one good pro Hemi aluminum roller rocker arm, intake or exhaust, for 150.00.
Some guys get 16 and can't seem to figure out why and will spend lots of time bashing the low ball selling company.......
As stated and in addition to above, maybe looking into a mirror could reveal REAL the problem...

I bought a set before I knew better. I have had no issues but I plan to replace them this winter, a friend had one come apart and it did a lot of damage.

|RPM||All of the posts seem to refer to BBC what about the SBC? Anybody using the Pro Comp rockers on a small block? Good or bad?|

yea you definitely need to avoid procomp, always buy products with good reputations (in america).
My friend got a set of procomp rockers, AND ONE DIDN'T HAVE THE OIL HOLE DRILLED THROUGH IT!

What he said.
Plus, no matter how many times you try to tell folks not to do something, they do it anyway, with similar results. I'm too paranoid to try some products. Just because they look OK doesn't mean a thing. I'd rather make my own than buy some of what's out there. Same goes for heads, cranks, manifolds, rods, fasteners etc etc etc. Lot of times the material properties just aren't up to snuff, in your case it looks like fitment issues on a couple fronts.
Now, how about some of those anodized pistons? Who hard anodizes pistons?

|DoubleVision||Indeed. But I didn`t post that out of trying to tell you so or rub it in. Since so many read this forum, members and non members alike it was posted in hopes to reach them as well before they get taken by a inferior product. Anyone can spend money on junk and realize the few dollars more they could have paid for a quality brand was worth it in the end in terms of time and money. I always been weary of roller rockers, when one gives up and fills the engine with needles and other trash the engine is history and the bill just got a lot bigger.|

Listen...I know that "you get what you pay for" and it has been stated several times.
I knew these were not the optimum choice and for a hundred and fifty bucks I tried them...they are junk. It is not like I was thinking that I was going to get the best quality for the cheapest price.
The thing is that these didn't even come close. They could have sent me some pieces of scrap iron and it would have been better. It is like they didn't even make an attempt.
Everybody says they are junk and I agreed and I just wanted to give the reasons why because nobody else ever does.
