Can you tell what brand these are



These popped up on my local Craigslist, guy selling them does not know much about them. Look like knock offs of the nice Harland sharp with the common shaft. They are cheap enough, if they are a known good rocker to use i will pick them up. He said he had guide plates as well but I was under the impression you did not need them with shaft mounts.

The Harland’s I have seen had a smaller common shaft and nicer looking adjustment screws for valve lash.

These (not these exact ones but the smaller shaft) are the ones I am use to seeing but while looking for this picture I found a picture of a set that looked exactly as above and said they were Harland’s.

That set you last posted a picture of, is in sale on oldsrocketparts, without zero mentions about them being HS ( and i bet they would mention they are HS rockers if they really would be), and the price they are listing for those, is 224$, which also suggests they are not genuine HS's.

Are they a good rocker arm? Geometry, strength, stability, etc?

Those rockers were made by Harland sharp and are for stock cast iron cylinder heads with stock length valves...

These were made about 30+ years ago, but if in good shape will last a lifetime.

If you have longer valves you must shim the pedestal accordingly!
