I have heard elsewhere that some roller lifters to suit a solid roller cam have a short lifespan and that others have oiling of the rollers which extends the lifespan greatly, this is the first i have heard of this, anyone know?
What roller lifters are best for solid roller cam? Jesel are the most expensive are they worth the money or what?
I dont think its so much the oiling issues, as the lash hammering the bearings. To go solid roller, it means you are super serious and will be running big revs and big lift. The sky high valve spring pressure required doesnt help.
I bought a set of crower hi pressure pin oiling en e-bay a while ago brand new for $400 and they are supposedly more suited to a street based engine that isnt running hi revs all day.
They are'nt relying on splash lubrication from the crank!

I think they are too unreliable for an expensive street motor too dangerous so many little rollers and one of them could cause much damage. I talked to John from CHI and he believes my setup doesn't require a roller cam and that a solid flat tappet with lightweight lifters would be the most reliable setup.
