I figured since my car was down I might as well do this now before I had a possible needle bearing failure. Each rocker has 66 needle bearings in it that I'm glad I got to remove before they got out. The trunnion kit is a bushing that is machined with oil grooves as are the rocker shafts. Easy to install with no special tools needed besides a c clip tool.

I had this done a couple years ago.
one of the needle bearings fell out once removed from the car :eek2:

the "washer" like ring on the bolt head stated to work it's way up the bolt too... weird, should have taken a picture of it at the time.

I wondered how the sleeve bearing version of the trunion upgrade worked out for people. Seems like a fairly robust design, though I thought the trunion itself was only lubricated by "drip" oiling and not under pressure necessarily. Might be concerned with longevity of this design, but I'm sure someone has tested it.

I opted for the Comp Cams version with the encapsulated needle bearings on the last car I put together. I hope that these work just as well!

A lot of people who did the upgrades said it made the motor a lot quieter, which is an added bonus. I'll be able to verify that after I get my clutch put in, asshole took forever to ship it.

The motor is ALOT quieter, it got rid of the sewing machine sound of the valvetrain

The only thing I heard about was an issue with the wear on the Comp sets
