Pedestal-mount roller rockers
Pedestal-mount roller rockers are what the 5.8L engine came with from the factory, and what many cam manufac-turers offer in roller form as easy valvetrain upgrades. Pedestal-mount rockers, roller or otherwise, fasten to the cylinder head resting on aluminum pedestals that form a base for the rocker arm to rest upon. The pedestals rest in a sheet metal channel that ties the rockers together in pairs and prevents excessive side-to-side movement of the rocker tip on valve. A long, 5/16-inch cap screw goes through the center of the rocker's fulcrum, through the pedestal, and into the boss on the cylinder head.
Well me and my girlfriend had a day off and decided to take a road trip to Late Model Restoration. Let me tell you, we had the best CUSTOMER SERVICE ever. Jay was very helpful and knowledgeable about the parts I purchased. The showroom was clean and inviting. Also I got to meet JMAC that host's all of their YouTube videos. They also had project BLUE COLLAR in the parking lot, and it is NICE. I will recommend Late Model to everyone I know...
