  • Studebaker Rocker Arms

    Is it true that Stude V-8 rocker arms will fit an early cadillac V-8?
    if so I have a friend that could use some adjustable rockers on his hot-rod Caddy engine.

    Never tried it that way, but McGurk and other mag. rockers are common for Cads. Then there are geometry problems and the Stude used an odd ball .8125" rocker shaft diam.

      I saw some on Ebay for sale and the ad stated that they would work on the early Caddy engines. I have no idea. I guess I can pull the Caddy valve covers and see.

        If Stude used an odd size. (13/16) rocker shaft, you might want to consider using the entire rockers setup, stands, shaft and rockers on that Caddy.

          Stude rocker assemblies were a famous early Caddy hot rod upgrade back in the old days. I'm not sure about all the details, but I've heard about it from the old guys. There may very well be something better around now.
