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.
FOR SALE...... $22,990
AUII XR8 (200kw), Silhouette, Body Kit, Hawk Wing, 5 Speed man, Premium Brakes, Premium Sound, Genie Extractors, 3" exhaust with twin 3" tips, K & N filter with air scoop, Polished Inlet manifold, MAF & 70mm T/B, T series interior handles & Gear stick ring, Chequer plate, Momo Pedals.
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.
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.
5.0 Litres of Ford injected iron. EB2 Fairmont.
HSV. Can you say WICE?
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.
