Knuckle Rocker Arms
I recently purchased new rocker arm and shafts for my '47 FL. In performing my research prior to the purchase, I was looking for the Sweedish company that originally remanufactured the Knuckle head-assemblies, as those that I personally observed were of very high quality. Apparently they either sold out or had a business chnge of some sort. I swallowed hard, threw caution to the wind and ordered a set of rocker arms and shafts from Ted.
Wow, was I pleasantly suprised! The rocker arms are of the highest qualiy, the fit on the new shafts is perfect and everything lines up as well as the factory units that I am replacing. Even better - they have bushings! and the bushings have the machined oil distribution grooves !! This saved me a LOT of time because if these repops were of poor quality, I would have had to machine the old rocker arms and fit shovelhead/Sportster rocker arm bushings. Also, a fair amount of meat would have to be removed from the valve pads on the arms and I would have had to replace the pushrod balls as well. In the end, my labor would have exceeded the cost of the new rocker arms.
It seems that Ted now sells the parts manufactured by the pevious company and my guess is that he probably purchased the entire operation in support of the knuckle motors that he sells. If so, this as a wise business decision - I'll have to ask him when I see him at the next meet.
My stongest recommendation goes to those who are contemplating buying a set of these rocker arms through V-Twin.
