Mod x 17 ohv roller rockers
« on: November 14, 2020, 04:46:01 PM »
I’m building a mod x ohv170 and I had purchased a set of roller rocker that I believe George herrin and made . I had been through the Tecumseh part of this forum front to back roughly a dozen times during my very recent tvt build . And I had seen that there is machining needed to be done to the head for this style roller rocker to be installed but Nothing was mentioned on what needed to be done machining wise . If any of you guys had run this style and know what’s needed to be done I would like to know what’s needed to be done . I will post a picture of said style rollers

I think I would contact EC carb. That's where George would have made them. It can't hurt to ask.

Most likely Steve Bertrand, he made most all the custom Indian parts
