Have a good question, Can you switch say, CB 1.4's say to Chinese 1.4's or even Scat 1.4's without cutting another set of pushrods? I would think they would pretty close. But never tried it. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Ted,
I have no experience with those brands, but last year in a frantic reconfigure of my street motor for a race, I experimented with 2 ratios of Breg rockers as well as 2 pauters ... they were all quite close especially inside each brand, but for optimal results each would have had specific needs.
Take care,
Tom

You need to be careful if you switch to scat 1.4s as they actually measure out at closer to 1.6:1 ! This can get you in to all sorts of problems with coil bind etc. The cb rockers are fantastic - I would stick with them
if I were you.

Thanks guy's, but this is the problem, A friend of mine needs a set of 1.4's, I have a set of Chinese ones that were modified at Berg's with there shafts and hardware. I want to keep them but was thinking of loaning the set to him till he can get the CB's down the road. I have no problem loaning him the rocker's, but when he get's his CB's, will he be able to still use the same push rods? I hope this clarifies this better.

I think you'll be lucky if you can use the same pushrods. (I Think that was the original question)
