Default Rocker arm retainer buttons

OK so, I was on here reading about rebuilding my heads and someone suggested that I replace these plastic rocker arm retainers ( thinking it was Robyn). Now who sells these as I am having a hard time finding them and was told they were cheap? I have only found them on EBay at 7.45 EACH. Which to me is high priced for plastic.

Anyone know of a good place to purchase these?

Again thank you all for the advice and help.

Gary

I listed the part # in the 6.2/6.5 tech forum under useful part numbers

You are welcome

AS mentioned Rock auto is cheaper MR1948 part number.

When you install these use a round shaft of similar size that covers the button and tap into shaft carefully.

Set the shaft in the cradles in the head and secure with the end bolts and then install buttons.

Keeps things secured and easy to manage.
