Will a roller rocker from a 5.0 (1.72:1) fit an 00 3.8l?

I'm not sure if it's pedestal mount or not, but shouldn't it work fine?

I'm asking because I know a guy that is selling them el-cheapo style, <150, slightly used.

W, well, shoot, I think it's windsor.

Brandon the ratio is important, but not all that much, it's position of fulcrum and weight pushed around... .01 is way negligible.

The 351 Cleveland design was almost a direct copy of a 396 Chevy, the 3.8 V6 is a copy of the Buick 3.8 V6, coincidence that they have about the same roller rocker, lol, who knows, lol.

I've had 5.0 rockers on there, the tip length is shorter
on a 5.0 so it hits the edge of the valve stem. Instant wipe-out!

And no, I did not run it that way, I just checked the geometry

are you having problems posting too? Where you post and it gives some
server error so you go back and resubmit? I just ask because you got a
double post here too.
