Springs and pushrods. Check the rocker arms for wear.

Not to hijack your thread brother, but does anyone know if there is an alternative mounting solution for the rockers? Something other than the rediculous plastic clip.

Since you're going to be swapping those out anyways, I figured it was kinda related.

I have a set of 3/8" chromoly pushrods here in stock for a 6.4, as to answer the other question about the rockers, I believe Empire Diesel is soon to be releasing a roller rocker set for the 6.4's.

But any how if you need some pushrods let me know and I'll get them coming your way.

Thanks

I've heard they cause the rocker arms to be the next target in line for things to break if you upgrade the pushrods. Idk but i'll give you a holla some time this week.
