intake and exhaust???

Posted By: blacknight On: 03-19-2008 @ 15:00:13         Reply | Edit
on a 78 firebird with a 305 chevy

how can I tell which rocker arms belong to intake and exhaust?

**I was once told the rockers closer to the manifold are intakes, but they are in a straight line on my car, so I cant tell. any help will be grateful.

thanks for your help

Well, you could look at the ports. The exhaust valve and rocker will be in line with the exhaust port. And the intake valve and rocker will be in line with the intake ports.

Or you could use that diagram. And it is completely universal! the valves are in the same order no matter which way you look at the engine from front to back, or back to front hahaha
