    82-83 Rockers vs 79-81 Rockers

    Anyone know if the rockers are the same for the 79-81 motors and the 82-83 motors or are they different?

    I already know the heads themselves are different and do not interchange but also am aware they shared some parts...

    I did a parts lookup online, and the part numbers do not match. I have access to some rockers for an '82, and a load of spares for my '81 and I could compare them. Last time I had them side by side, they looked identical. But the angles and sizes could be slightly different. I will see what I can come up with in the next few days...

    I would well imagine that it would depend on whether the engine had CVCC or not, as well as year, model and other factors.

    Sure, let me know if you come up with anything. I need 79-81 rockers for my project. I may have found some but do not have the exact part numbers and the rockers are in Orgegon (I am in BC). Kind of trying my luck that they are the correct ones.

    What I do know is that they are both the same CVCC or not (or EK vs. EL). Minus the auxillaries of course for the sake of the EL.

    I was hoping to compare my 81 rockers to your 83 rockers. Then we'd know for sure.

    looks like the 82-83 ones are in fact different than the 79-81 rockers...I may have found some NOS rockers. I will know next week.
