    I have 2005 bulldog. Anyone know what rocker arms i have? TP? S&S, reguler or roller? I have the dreaded tick, will eventually do s&s rocker box swap, but thought about for short term buying non roller s&s rocker arms and shafts. Saw Marky Mark video where he thought it could be the bushings. In the absemce of haveing $1,000 to do swap, i thought maybe new arms. Any thoughts are helpful.

    Am i able to put s&s rocker arms non roller in there? with s&s rocker shafts as well. Long term i plan on doing the whole rocker box, but thought maybe for short term to possibly lose the ticking, i swap arms and shafts and ill need the arms and shafts anyway when i do the whole box.

    You may have to do more than just the rocker boxes swap.
    Valve guides might be worn out not worth the risk just slapping new boxes etc on top.
