Diesel Army: HiPo Rocker System Project DeadSpool To Get A Valvetrain Upgrade

Diesel Army has a new article up about our Dodge Cummins Pedestal Rocker System.  Here’s a snippet:

 

In my honest opinion, in all of the upgrades available for diesel engines, rocker arms are overlooked. We know they are the bridge between the valves and the pushrods of an engine, but other than that, they get used for valve adjustment and we move on. When you take something like Project Deadspool, something that is constantly abused, valve adjustment should be maintained more often.

Just recently, I had the valve cover off of the engine at a race for a valve adjustment and I was noticing some noise during idle and even at open throttle. I was hoping this could cure it and once inside, I discovered that some of the valves have been adjusted way too tight and some of the plastic caps that separate the rocker and the bridge were broken.

Proposition 65 Compliance Statement

PROPOSITION 65 COMPLIANCE STATEMENT

The California Safe Drinking Water & Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986 (Prop 65) Explained:
In 1986, California voters approved an initiative to address concerns about exposure to toxic chemicals. That initiative became the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, commonly known as Proposition 65.

Proposition 65 requires the State of California to publish a list of chemicals known to cause cancer, birth defects, or other reproductive harm. This list, which must be updated at least once a year, has grown to include over 900 chemicals since it was first published in 1987.
Proposition 65 requires businesses to provide Californians with a clear and reasonable warning about chemicals in the products they purchase, in their home or workplace, or that are released into the environment. By providing this information, Proposition 65 enables Californians to make informed decisions about protecting themselves from exposure to these chemicals. Proposition 65 also prohibits California businesses from knowingly discharging significant amounts of listed chemicals into sources of drinking water.

The Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) administers the Proposition 65 program. OEHHA, which is part of the California Environmental Protection Agency (Cal/EPA), also evaluates all currently available scientific information on substances considered for placement on the Proposition 65 list.

What this means to you:
While the proposition was created to protect drinking water sources from chemical contamination, the scope of the law has expanded over the years. It now includes over 900 chemicals and also pertains to (but is not limited to) exposure through touch, inhalation, ingestion, or skin contact.
The Proposition 65 warning can now be found on products that may contain a small amount of over 900 chemicals or ingredients that the OEHHA lists as a carcinogen or reproductive toxicant. This includes vinyl, coatings, plastics, and much more.
Many of the elements listed under Proposition 65 are common everyday additives found in products like electrical wire, cable, coated fabrics, steering wheels, shoes, gloves, tonneau covers, bed liners, oil filter wrenches, brake pads, floor mats, etc.

Because of the vast array of products that might contain one of the chemicals or ingredients on the list, we must include Proposition 65 warnings in our communications with you. We are required to use exact wording as specified by the state of California. While the warning sounds alarming, the purpose is to notify you of the potential risk so that you can make an informed buying decision.

Main Cap Stud Kit Available for LS Engines: Part # 1000098

PRW Now Carries a Heavy Duty Main Cap Stud Kit for GM LS Series Engines!

We’re excited to announce our new Main Cap Stud Kit for your LS Engine.  Available for 4.8, 5.3, 5.7, and 6.0L LS Based Engines from 1997-2015 with a 6 Bolt Main.

If you want to improve the life of your engine block, upgrade your stock bolts to stronger, more capable studs.

If you’re upgrading  with higher horsepower parts, the higher cylinder pressures may cause the stock bolts to stretch which is knows as main cap “walk”.  This can create high vibration causing damage to contacted surfaces.  What can happen is the loosening of other parts such as main bearings and eventually oil pressure loss.

Our main cap upgrade replaces the stock bolts to high performance studs.  PRW uses premium grade Custom 4150 Steel rated at “aircraft” quality. Our studs are then specially heat-treated to 180,000 psi. This heat treating procedure allows for total heat penetration which results in a stronger, more superior stud compared to lesser quality studs from other manufacturers.
