I started hearing a ticking noise coming from under the valve covers, which turned out to side to side play on a few of
the rockers arms. These are the ZZP modified 1.9 rockers which were purchased on 5/24/10. Although I've had these installed for quite a few years, I've only driven 22,928 miles with them installed. I don't know how many miles were on them before the I owned them, guess I shouldn't have purchased used rockers. ZZP doesn't sell this type anymore, they offer ones with an improved trunnion and bearing design. I got in contact with ZZP, to see if they could repair these, had a repair kit or had few lying around which they didn't. I then ask for a discount on purchasing a new set and I was politely told no. I really thought they would've given me a small discount, I guess being a long time customer doesn't mean much these days. I'm now in the process of trying to find a place to either purchase the parts to do the repair myself or send them out to be repaired. There are trunnion upgrade kits available, but they're only available for the Ls engine. If anyone still has the ZZP modified rockers installed and have ticking coming from the valve cover it's probably the rockers. I like the design of the new ZZP rockers, but the I got your money and now your on your own approach is what I don't like. A small 10% discount shouldn't have been a problem for them and would've kept a long time customer loyal.This is my summer fun vehicle, so I'll just park it until I decide if I'm going to purchase new rockers from someone else or cam it. Btw, I only have 68,247 miles on the car as it sit.
