A while back I put up a Post inquireing about my Sky Hawk RPM limit. Very informative answers...however, SOMEone PMed me about (I believe) a set of R1/R2 valve springs they'd sell me. I've since lost all my PM's :mad:. Whomever it was, could you please PM me again? Thanks, in advance...

If you do not receive a reply those valve springs are readily available from our vendors.

You can buy the 155 Lb. R1/R2 Valve Springs New, from ANY Studebaker Vendor at: http://studebakervendors.com

They are good to the RPM Limit of 5500 RPM.

Fairborn Studebaker is also a place to get many performance parts.

One more time, just remember the stock cam horsepower curve falls off rapidly when revved above 4800 RPMs.

Jack,
I'm looking for 1.5:1 rockers, too...
