I've been gathering parts to build a "frankenmotor" - I've got '95 Legacy 2.2 dual port heads with roller rockers and HLAs and will be using a '98 OBW 2.5 block.
I was wondering if there was a way to convert these to manual valve adjustment, but keep the roller rockers.
I gather that the later ej22s with the manual valve adjustment are NOT roller rockers? Is there any way to replace the HLAs in the roller rocker arms with the adjustment screws?
(In case you're wondering why- I don't want to deal with noisy/sticky HLAs of unknown condition on my junkyard heads, and I like the idea of the lower engine friction of the roller rockers and manual adjustment.)
Thanks in advance for your thoughts- Nathan
