on Dart Iron Eagle Heads? Just got my new heads in today and the stepped guide plates that JR Motorsports sent look like they will put the push rods in a bind. Do you have to run offset roller rockers with these heads? I hope not. Just got my Crane roller rockers in and they are standard. (No offset) Dart literature says to use flat guide plates and of course I get the stepped and raised. Anybody have experience with Darts? 200 x 64CC 2.02 & 1.60 with .600 lift springs.
Thanks for any advice

I have a set of Iron Eagles on my drag motor, and Iam running the stepped guide plates, I havent had a problem yet. Also, on my cousins modified motor, we have the flat plates we have broken a few pushrods, but I think that it is due to the vlave springs getting weak, and also the 2 piece pushrods. I think I finally talked him into getting the one piece pushrods. But either way, I havent really run into problems. Just my opinion

I run the Dart Iron Eagles, too. Mine came with the flat guide plates, and as you say Dart says to only use the flat ones. There must be a reason. I would get a hold of JR Motorsports and have them send you the flat ones to be safe.

Give Isky cams a call they make a two piece push rod plate that you can tack weld in place. Ron Melville
