Default Stud Mount Conversion Kits

I orderd a set of COMP Cams Magnum Rocker Arms that are stud mount and didnt know that my gt40 head were Pedestal mount! Has any one used them with the Crane Cams pedestal to stud mount Conversion Kits with the comp cams magnum rocker arms ?

just send them back and order pedastal mount, using conversion kits are weak as the base still is a 5/16 size diameter

Well it may be to late to send them back and they are not p's. The motor is going in my 77 f100 and wont really be pushed all that hard. What brand of Pedestal roller rockers do yall like? They all seem high $$

If you aren't going to push it hard then why bother? I use Ford racing pedestal mount rockers and they work very well.

trickflow i mean you can do it why not reuse the stock ones you have anyways the ones off the e7te heads work same 1.6 ratio you dont gain from using the stud mount rockers you gain from the ratio and by the way when u get stud mount rockers you need an intake spacer and the tall valve covers
