Has anyone tried putting banana grooves in the rocker arm shaft for better lubrication ???
I know it a common thing to do on the older generation small block's , and
I know the aftermarket shafts have them , but was curious if anyone tried it on their Gen3 stock shafts ??

thoughts ?

The reason I ask is look at the wear pattern on the shaft below , by the oil hole

I would be afraid they would develop cracks. But not having done this I can't say with certainly they would. The oem wall thickness is only around .187"- .0157"..

Those are some nice little mods. Thank you Rick.


Just a suggestion. It would be nice if these mod vids where put somewhere as "stickies" for everyone to view and mod their Hemi engines. Things like this stuff as well.

Porting Hemi cylinder heads.
Porting Hemi intake manifolds.
Installing LS double valve springs.
Installing Johnson LS style hydraulic lifters.
Proper harmonic balancer fitting/installation on crankshaft.
Clearancing Hemi engine block for stroker crankshaft.
Proper ring gaps for n/a, nos and boosted Hemi engines.
Proper cr for n/a, nos and boosted Hemi engines for street/track.
Cam degreeing for Hemi engine.
Installing a cog belt on a supercharger for Hemi engine.
ect, ect.

I especially like the attention to detail with the de-burring. To me it expresses quality and is the way it should be finished...
