I used them on my 350 and will be installing them on my 283 bacause I was told they are more accurate in ratio. I tried setting up the geometry on my 283 with the stock stamped rockers and I could not get them to leave a mark so I could not tell if they are centered on the valve. When I put them on the 350 it was clear where the rocker was riding on the valve. I know roller fulcrum rockers would have been better but I am on a budget and still wanted the geometry to be correct. The balls do have grooves for better oiling and less surface area so there is some reduced friction.
