was surfing around and came across this..

Big Block Chevy Roller Rocker Arm Conversion

Looked like some fun but not really sure if anyone else has done this besides mojo.. thought id throw this out see what everyone says. the guy already has the CAD plans up, and also wondered could this be done to a 4.0 head??

You can't apply that to a 4.0L head, but back when I made that mod there were no roller rockers available and 4.0L heads were new and uncommon. Since then we worked with Harland Sharp to design roller rockers for the 4.0L head, and they are available elsewhere as well. There's no advantage to the old head - the 4.0L heads are much better.
I'm surprised that old site is still active....
