Can I order these thru CJ's and include the AFR options such as 7/16 rocker studs, upgraded springs, and titanium retainers since they ship directly form the factory?  If so how do I do this thru CJs?

Will the standard rockers fit the pedestals, and will these require longer pushrods than standard on a 289  ? Thanks

Asked by: Daman
This will use stud mounted push rods.This seems like an easily answered question, however, there are many variables. Block and cylinder head deck heights, head gasket thickness, varying cams, rockers arms, and valve length can all affect pushrod length. Please see our following best estimates: for 165, 185 or 195cc standard or .100” long pushrods work in most cases. For 205 or 220cc typically .100” or .200” long pushrods will usually achieve proper geometry. For exact pushrod length we suggest using an adjustable pushrod to determine the proper length pushrod to be used.

Sorry I accidentally clicked on the 165 heads when asking my last question.  Meant to ask if the 185 heads would be a better choice then the z heads it wasn't a typo. 

Asked by: Bald tires Murphy
That would all depend on what you are going to use the engine for and what cam you are using.

Would these 185's be a better choice on the z363 crate motor rather then the ford z heads that come on it? 

Asked by: Bald tires Murphy
The ford head has larger intake valves and larger combustion chamber.

Can these be used in a 331 stroker engine as well ?

Asked by: Stuart
Yes a 331 is the same block as a 289/302 just stroked out.
