    Not sure on the dukes but a buddy just priced them for his BMF heads, TD was 400 cheaper then Jesels.

    I've seen both break and seen both work well. I've ran Jesela and had good luck so I stay with them, if I bought a motor with TD i'd keep them and I am sure they'd work fine.

    The T&D's i just got have oiling ports for the springs as well as the roller tips. Not sure about the Jesels. Just a thought.

    T@D is a better deal for the Dukes. I have Jesel on mine and I'd rather have T@Ds. The adjusment is a much better deal (bigger). Seems the T@D holds the lash better. We found that out on my bosses blower motors. Hes got both types.

    We use T-D exclusively on all of our engines from 565 bracket engines to 800" nitrous engines. I will have to order them for the 18 degree heads, as we use mainly Brodix 16 degree heads. I can sell them for about 1550.00. T-D will ship in about a week or 2. Call me at 864-578-5622 Brad

    I can see why PAR uses T&D over Jessel, i bought a set of T&D pros from a fellow racer here on RJ and they are nice. But before that i tried to get imfo from Jessel as to what offset i needed for the bodix 10 RPSP S/BLK heads that i had, all they did was give me a run around and wouldn't/couldn't tell me which setup i needed for these heads. The RJ person i bought the rockers from sent them to me to check out, it turned out i needed .250 offset which these were. I then called T&D about the setup and how to get started since my heads were already together and i could use their fixture. The tech spend atleast 15 min. explaining how to get there and sent me 2 sets of shims .030 and .060 to make sure that i was able get the right geometry and keep the roller oil holes lined up. I'll definately buy T&D in the future just from their customer service.

    I heard the same thing,T&D has great customer service. That is the same thing I heard about Patrick at Pro Systems carbs. I'm all about customer service because I enjoy working on my own stuff when possible. I had back surgery so doing what I can on my own is like mental therapy to me.I need another surgery but I'm trying to put it off as long as I can.I want to thank everybody for the info.

    My Jesel Rockers have treated me very well. They hold lash great too.
    No experience with T&D.
