A buddy of mine has some Crane shaftmount rockers on his LS engine and one has stripped out... We cannot manage to find any replacement parts. The rocker itself stripped allowing the adjuster bolt to push up through, repair efforts have failed.

Anyone have some suggestions on where to look? Nothing useful has turned up from internet searches so far and cant try calling Crane til monday

Also, I have it narrowed down to being one of these 2 kits but cannot determine how to tell which he has- same shafts and same hardware so unless he finds some numbers on them somewhere we may be sunk- I havent seen the car in person just helping him with research and seeking parts to get back to racing....

Thanks for the help

Have you tried to drill and tap oversize,install a bolt with red loctite,cut flush,then drill and tap to the size you need ??

I dont think there is enough space in the rocker to do so...

I am just glad I didnt buy a set of them for the FE- I didnt have 500 to blow on rockers with school costs but after seeing the adjuster screw shove up through one the regret is non-existant...

The more I look the more it seems like Crane is the only hope, though I have no idea what to expect when calling them... Worth a shot I suppose, beats waiting around for a whole new setup...

Yella Terra is what the LS guys keep suggesting he gets, anyone have experience with them?

can you post pics of the failed repair attempts ? i dont really know from you description exactly what has stripped Confused . unless its something really weird, stripped threads are just a minor inconvenience.

You should be able to a timecert and screw the adjuster back in.

I run the Terra and they are beefy.

10sec- the adjuster screw for setting preload like you see in the pic af2 posted... My buddy tried using a helicoil with no luck- it too pushed right up through... Sucks!

Edit: timeserts are new to me but that looks way more promising than the helicoil method... i will have to verfiy the helicoil pushed through vs. backed itself out

It needs to be timeserted with loctite then run the adjuster in.

Yep! I sent him the time-sert idea and he is seeking them out now. I guess he found a part # for an oversize OD for correcting where a helicoil didnt work out- wish we had known of them earlier... All I have ever used were helicoils...

Waiting to hear how this works out Very Happy
