I bought a set of used rockers off of fleaBay for my ‘59 235 and the shafts are excessively worn. I see that I can buy replacement shafts but I haven’t seen any where they list different years. Are the shafts from a ‘59 the same shaft as previous models or are the holes in the shaft aligned with the offset groove in the rocker?
Thanks for all the suggestions. The rockers seems to be in good shape so all I want to replace is the shafts. My concern was the shafts being all the same thru the years. I checked the existing shaft and the holes in the shaft don’t align with the offset grooves in the rockers, so I want to make sure that is correct of a ‘59 235 before I invest more money into the assembly.
It’s not that the rockers are in good shape, is the clearance between the shaft and the rocker. It’s important on the 59-62 version because if it’s a little out of specification, the oil pressure bleeds off around the rocker and because the 59-62 rocker has the off set groove, if the pressure is bleeding off around the rocker then the rocker does not get sufficient oil. Just check it carefully.
