you need to buy the whole rocker assembly, that little piece isn't available separate. I've seen that quite a bit in the older common rails.

so can you get just the rocker or do i have to buy all the rockers ? its crazy cause the lil metal piece that goes under the plastic piece on the rocker wasnt on the ball im curious if i just didnt notice it fell off or if it had been off there was no sign of ware . What ids the porpose of the lil plastic piece is it just a retainer ?

you can buy one rocker at a time. I don't know its exact function, but it is a retainer of some form.

That I don't know... I know when guys do third gen head swaps onto VP trucks they take the rockers and pushrods and all from the 3rd gen... so that leads me to think they are different in some manor, perhaps a different motion ratio.
