VW Type1 Rockers
As of the end of March, 2012, all of Pauter Type 1 rockers have been transitioned to non-needle bearing type (as pictured above) where the heat treated aluminum body will ride directly on the hardened and nitrided shaft. This type of fulcrum joint has proven itself over years of testing and in fact this form of contact wear surface replicates what is and has been common to piston/wristpin joints in millions of vehicles over the past century.
Latest version feeds oil to shaft and roller tip/valve spring/guide areas of valvetrain through rifle drilled, heat treated and nitrided oil-through adjuster screws.
Above are our Type 1 billet roller rocker arms and shaft assembly.
