New Rockers and assembly for the '92

Postby Reidmach » Thu Nov 11, 2010 8:07 am

Good morning to all.
My name is Darrell Reid, I manufactuer the "Reid" exhaust rockers being used by many alcohol and top fuel teams.
I have been lurking here, until I finished these new components.
The assembly has been running on a N/TF car for about a year, with significant improvements in valve life and spring life.
The replacement exhausts are brand new, and were made after talking to several
folks who were concerned about potential breakage and wear on the original rocker arms being run in "cackle" cars, and industrial applications as well as street cars.
Adjuster screws are available with a .125 radius "receiver" to allow using the original pushrods, or the 7/16 oiling adjusters with cup style pushrods.

Please have a look at the video and contact me with any questions or comments.

The video is great, but the sound quality is
AWFUL. Perhaps you should consider re-doing
it with with the background noise from original
sound track removed and then re-dub your
narration so that you can be clearly heard.

In the pic, that one rocker off to the right, by itself...looks to me like its slanted the other way compared to the asembled set. Am I seeing things? Obviously its diff for a reason, what would that be?

I think that rocker is for the 2nd Gen 426 Hemi.

Correct, that is the "Late model", 426 "top fuel" exhaust rocker being used by several big show fuel cars.
One particular car has over 400 runs on the set they have.
I have produced the 426 1.53 ratio "fuel" , 426 1.70 ratio fat head, and 1.60 ratio fat head exhaust rocker arms.
The new 331,354,392,417 rockers have been made with the same quality and attention to detail as the 426 models.

Very nice looking, What are you asking for a set with shafts and pedastals? Do the rkrs fit stock shafts? Thanks, Steve

Hi Steve,
Thank you for your interest in my products.
All of the rockers have a 7/8 (.875") ID bushing (stock shaft), an option is the 11/16 (.6875") ID.
The "shoe" type exhaust rocker is specifically made for the stock stands.
At this time the roller rockers are made for the aftermarket stands, but can be fitted to run on the stock stands.
Winter will bring out an intake replacement shoe rocker.
Please give me a call at my shop.
I will be able to answer your questions in a more direct manner.

Darrell
