they are indy rockers and its never the same ones. after setting the lash it runs great but then its a crap shoot as to how long before one loosens up. engine is a 440 with a 590 cam and indy rockers.....any tips

the best tip i can give you is to sell them to someone you don't like and put a decent set on there.
other than that, a single drop of wicking loc-tight will keep them from loosening.

Funny thing...I do alot of different type engines and the Import stuff is amazing! You set the adjusters and they tighten up like a bank vault and WILL NOT MOVE--I am told it has something to do with the metric pitch threads--If I ever prove that I am going to try it on a Mopar rocker somehow--Every Mopar aluminum rocker I have seen with the "get loose " problem seems to have been overtightened at some point and has streached the threads in the rocker--that and China adjusters are doomsday! Smith Bros adjusters are some of the best but there is no way to beat Harland rockers on a Mopar unless you go to TD or Jesel--It is crazy to race a Mopar with anything else--it will always bite you and cost MORE than good stuff at the start IMO

I run a Comp...solid flat tappet,.620 lift..262/266 @ .050 duration,with 1.6 Crane Ductile rockers,bronze-bushed and gone through by RAS. Isky 8005A springs,145/345 psi. My adjustments stay rock-solid,after initial settings in the Spring. If..and when I ever go to a solid roller..it's either Harland Sharp's or T&D!

Call Dove, they make em, and like Dan said, They arent the best. I have a set on a 440, and a set on a 340 from Hughes, but they are very light duty hydraulic cams. My Demon has Harlan Sharp, and if, IF I ever have any issues, Ill step up to T&Ds or Jessel.

Ditch em and save yourself a lot of anguish.For the money Harland Sharp is great and will at least talk to you if you have an issue.

I can hear some valvetrain noise over the exhaust on my car at idle in the garage, standing next to it with the front end off but if I hear something over the exhaust at WOT it's already too late.
