So today I was changing my oil and found needles from my rockers stuck to my drain plug. I'm kinda looking to find someone that has stock or after market ones ASAP because it's my daly driver. Anyone in Lancaster pa or close by let me know. Thanks guys.

Got the rockers in today thanks to Outkast6991 for getting me a better set, here are some pictures, i did not find the two of the three bearing caps yet even after running cheap oil through the car, but so far so good car is back to running normal, was reading on some old forums and seems like this happens allot, thanks guys

Your not worried about having that run through the motor?

Alittle bit but I got a magnet in the oil pan oil filter and the oil pick up has a screen

I hope you didnt mess someting up-thats terrible.

Yeah everything seems to be fine so far I'm thinking I'll drain the oil in a 1,000 miles to see if the magnet picks any more up. My question is why not one but three would fail on both sides of opisite heads. I usually change my oil 3,000 miles and never seen them in past oil changes. Car has 117,000 thousand miles but I hear they let go on cars with only 40,000 all ls motors share the same lifters except one I was told

Yeah read that gm knows about this problem but there's no recall. The car is stock with lm2 catback n lid. If nothing happens I'm going to get a set of stock lifters and send them out to comp cams to get there better caps put on.

Update. Going to install these. If I would of known these cars where known for this I would of upgraded the bearings when I got the car. Just something for you guys to think about. Streetside auto.com had them for 130 with free shipping
