No need to buy NOS, if you find a good smooth replacement with no spalling.  Ebay is usually full of them.  I usually buy the whole cover with all the rockers for the same price as one NOS rocker, or less.

I bought the rocker n cam with rockers for 32 bucks free shipping figure if the rockers  are no good ill buy a  few. I got them in the mail today so ill check what condition the rest are in. The one i screen shotted looked to be worst  of the 4 is at all just the bad one.

Hoping  i didnt get screwed when buying this rocker cover and parts. I ordered 1 good rocker feom eBay. Cover looks to be in good shape.  Same with the hwad i ordered. Should i source  another cam n 1 rocker?

Stuff looks better than what you had for sure, did you ask how many miles were on that engine you bought parts from? That head has had some miles on it you can tell from the wear on the journals in the head.

That is all run-able at least for a season if you pay attention to it, make sure you set the clearances correct and run good oil. Maybe polish those journals a little.

Other wise see if you can get a refund and look around a little harder. I know the feeling, I went through the same thing several years ago when mine spit its spark plugs out because the PO cross threaded them one to many times. Did manage to find a head cheaper than two rethread kits.

Unfortunately  no refund. Ill see if  a local shop  will be nice and clean up the journal for a decent fee, i found  2 good shape rockers. Cam is what will throw me off. Have no issue running the cam  with a good set of rockers. Waiting  for them to cone probably next week im hoping. Ordering my gasket kit fron common and a few other parts this weekend.

Any oil that has the JSO rating for MC engines is fine, I run Rotella diesel oil in mine just because I can get it cheap and it works. Little heavier but doesn't seem to hurt at all. Though I have read recently they have changed the formula so I don't know what I'm going to use now.

I don't waste money on Synthetic because you still have to change it every 1500 miles ish.

Ordered rockers  for very cheap low milage motors off ebay.  real good shape 2 for under 30 with shipping  shipped. Waiting to assemble  till i get the motor  cleaned up and painted

You mentioned  polishing. Would i need to buy aluminium  polish and micro towels or wouls your recomend anything else? And as far as the cam lobs go. With the good rockers will that arise an issue or should i shop for a cam?
