    Rude valve Train upgrade kit question?

    I have just bought a Rude valve Train upgrade kit; this kit does not come with OE rocker arm shaft bolts like the Riva´s kit.
    I want to ask you if i really need them ? or the OEM ones ar just fine?
    planning to REV 8800RPM
    Many thanks for the input

    They are a torque to yield bolt. I know some here reuse them or reuse them depending on measurements. But I always opt for a new set of OEM rocker shaft bolts, $35.00 is a pretty cheap considering the RPMs you want to turn.

    I was reading the question as if new OEM or riva bolts?
    Really not sure if the bolts in the riva kit are different.
    Maybe I misinterpreted.

    The bolts that come with the Riva are just OEM bolts. I re-used my bolts after the first time i took the rocker shaft off, this was after 100 hours on the stock bolts and I never had a problem..

    Given that they are quite cheap though, probably worth your while to change them.

    Riva does include the OEM bolts as posted above. I have never tried the ARP rocker arm bolts, was not too long ago there was a post about them breaking during install.

    That was the ARP bolts. Not the OEM bolts riva sends.

    That is pretty much what I just said. Riva sends OEM with the valve spring kits. Not sure how you got that I said anything about them including the ARPs. Simply just mentioned that the someone here posted about the ARPs breaking.

    arp bolts work fine i thinks its installer error they are way stronger than the oem based on specs.
