Roller Lifters

Which windsor injected 5.0L's came out with roller lifters?, and it they came out with normal lifters can you put roller lifters in without changing anything?
Cheers,
Jas.

Re: Roller Lifters

I don't know whether you mean lifters or rockers BUT roller rockers came out on the AUII XR8's from 2000 onwards, I don't think the optional V8 in the normal range came with them or not as they were only 175kw, some one may be able to give a little more light on the situation.

EB to AUIII including the specials like the T series all came out with roller lifters but only the T series and AU III's came out with the roller rockers. You can adopt the old windsors to use roller lifters you will need to purchase a kit for $105 from VPW and you will need to get a roller cam & lifters to go with it.

Re: Roller Lifters

Yeah roller lifters is what I was talking about. Thankyou for your replies.
I knew some had roller lifters, just not which ones, and they are held in the one place with a little clip to prevent disaster :s6:
Does anyone know what a set would cost, as I am rebuilding my engine and cannot see the point in not doing them.
Thankya
Jas.

A new set of roller lifters will set you back about $400. As long as yours aren't scratched or damaged you can easily dismantle them and clean them out. Mine were in perfect condition when I rebuilt my motor, so just spent an hour or two cleaning mine out and they were as good as new. Really easy to do and will save you $400.

I was told just to check that they rotated easily without any binding. Apparantly it is quite rare for them to get damaged. As I said mine were in perfect order after 200,000km, just full of crap inside which is normal and why they start to make a bit of noise.

all 5.0L injected engines have hydraulic roller cams which means they have roller lifters and not roller rockers!
