I've got the Powell kit as well. Took a bit to get them lined up right, but they seem solid now. Once it wasn't 5* outside and my assembly lube warmed up..they spun smooth as butter when I put them on! Their price is hard to beat if you catch them when they have some. Looks like they make small batches at a time, for their ebay store at least

some of the kits look similar but I have noticed variations on the trunnion oil channel designs..I believe Powell does in fact machine these in house, not sure about the others and would shy away from any that are not from a rep company.

and Don that article is the exact reasoning I can up with after getting my car 2.5 yr ago...lookin back(gettin old sux...hard to keep track of the dang time!) I have been running the Powell kit for prob 1.5 yr now, had them on when I went to 'cfest last year and they have gone down the 1/4 prob 50 times last season. As I mentioned before these seriously quite down the valve train and for me the peace of mind is priceless.....now if I can just get peeps to start usin 3/8 P/R I believe I can open up some more eye's...peace out!

Anytime!

3 reasons I went with C.H.E.

1. They make their own kit and use them in their own rockers
2. Ease of install - crazy simple
3. C.H.E.’s reputation - one of the best in the industry

C.H.E.’s rockers and bronze valve guides are proven in racing applications for many years.

I decided to pay a bit more, nothing wrong with the other kits mind you. All bronze kits are a reliable upgrade.

I didnt use assembly lube or oil when I pressed mine together.
I soaked them in oil after my lifters and spun them a few times before installing them. Vid is before soaking.

You mean soaking them in an oil filled bag/container like when soaking a timing chain before install? If so, how much time do they need to soak for....I like to start soaking the night before & so it's well lubed & ready to go for the next day, but (as we all know) sometimes things don't go as planned.

the trunnion kit does not need any soaking..all I did was press the old bearings out, clean the rocker and put it together...now my fingers were oily but other than that no lube.

Kit usually will state lube instructions.

C.H.E.s recommendation for their kit was to use assembly lube (Driven when I asked Matt).
