  • Roller lifters...

    Hi guys,
    With my 408 buildup I would like to use a set of the retro-fit roller lifters, the lifters with the cross-bars so I wouldnt have to install the fatcory style dog bones and hold down assembly. I assume they just drop right in as a pair, right? For those of you that run these lifters have you had any problems or insight?
    Thanks alot!

    I used roller lifters with the cross bar for several years. I've had no problems and seem to be working very well. I just put some oil on them and dropped them in.

        73_Mustang,

        I use the link-bars in my 359 and push them pretty hard with 600lb open pressure. They have held up very well for me with over 100 hard 1/4-mile passes. They can take a lot.

                    the comp 8931-16 are bad azz when used with a billet cam (std base) core and some nice pressure for street use
                    Kinda pricey,butI have heard of race applications ussing 500LBS open!!!
                    You have to use zero preload on these,or they will hold the valves open
