I am missing one offset rocker, I understand that I am probably going to have to purchase a whole set. Let me know what you have.

Do you need a Left or a Right one?

The 072 would be a right offset intake rocker.

What is the offset of the T/A vs W2 rocker?  I have some that I am not sure which they are but I could measure the offset from the center of the adjuster to the center of the tip.

The W2 Intake, had a 1/4" greater pushrod offset than the T/A Intake rocker arm does. So W2 and T/A  Intake rocker arms are not interchangeable.
This picture shows the difference as to where the push rod adjuster is located between the two of them. The tip on the valve side of the arm has the same offset between the two of them.

Looks like mine are all W2/W5 style, so I won't be able to help.
Good luck.

Now I should find a nice pair of W2 heads....

Well, how about some goods news on this subject. I have a bunch of raw casting W2 rockers that I picked up from mopar in the 80ís. I called a place to see if they could machine them into TA rockers. After looking at them, I thought it might not work and they confirmed that in an email. However, they did say they had spare W2 AND offset TA rockers for sale! You need to call Rocker Arms Unlimited in Redding, CA ASAP. Their  number is 530-242-1316. The email is rockerarms@rockerarms.com

Rockers unlimited was mistaken, they could not locate the rockers. Thanks again for the tip, still looking!

Bump. Im to the point in my engine assembly where I need to install my rockers. Looks like I will have to go full aftermarket within a couple days.

From what I I have been told by some racing buddies that have used the W2 since the 80s..
 
W2 is a small block aftermarket head platform from Mopar Performance that goes back to the 70s. There have been several variations produced over the years. The W2 heads require specific valvetrain, exhaust and intake manifolds etc. The W2's are a strong foundation to make some serious power.

Good luck on your search OP.
