Will the rocker assemblies from a 232 swap and work on to 259 heads? Thanks,

Well, this is one of those yes and no answers. The rockers will fit and work OK as long as you use the pushrods that are for the 232 or the early 259/289. Sometime around 1960 or so (not sure of the year), the pushrods were lengthened and the rockers were shortened. I don't know why this was done. Anyway, if you use the pushrods for the 232 with the rockers for the 232, they will work on the 259 heads installed on the 232. I hope this answers your question.
