Depends upon which kind, Heavy metal, Southern, Oldies, Easy Listening or Punk. I think the Punk and the Heavy Metal wear out as they get older. [img]images/graemlins/RockOn.gif[/img]

My MOPARS (aka Hesco) have been in for over 60,000 miles without a problem ...after I sent them back to Hesco to have the roller pins tig welded (free of charge).

I imagine if you machined the head, Jessels would be a better choice.
