The car is a 2002 Sebring Convertible GTC with a transplanted Chrysler 3.5L V6 engine. It is a SOHC design with 24 valves. For each cylinder, there are two separate intake valve rocker arms, and one combined exhaust valve rocker arm assembly.

If I were to do this, I'd probably go to a junkyard to find a head from a junked 3.5L engine, and get measurements of the pivot shaft, so I can find or fabricate spacers to block off the oil holes as you mentioned.
