Check out Datsun/Nissan truck rockers and shaft.  I order a shaft for my 
B about a year ago and it came in a nissan package.  I was going to 
rebush my rockers but through some investigation by a mechanic friend I 
found they were the same as a ? B1800 truck rocker.  I ordered 8 of these 
at about $10 cdn (<$8 US).  They matched perfectly, and saved me a lot 
of $$$$ over rebuilding/new.
