Re: Solid roller lifter

Crane make a lifter that has an oil groove in it to lube roller bearings and cam lobes, extended idling kills solid roller lifters. Crower is what the v8 supercars use, when i bought my heads from Searle Racing Equipment he also showed me 2nd hand gear from the v8 supercars he had for sale. Crower retail for over a grand a set but 2nd hand with a test laps on them and only $350 a set.

Re: Solid roller lifter

I dont know much about solid rollers (except they are expensive).
What does the joiner/bar that runs between each set of lifters do?
Do solid roller lifters sit higher than normal lifters?
Will I need to change pushrods?

Re: Solid roller lifter

Stop the thing from turning !!! On std roller Fords [85 on] they have a H bar between the two with spider plate holding them down.....

Re: Solid roller lifter

if there is an issue with coil bind etc different type keepers can be fitted to raise spring retainer raising valve spring height. But generaly you'll be fine but check spring bind pushrod length /for good rocker geometry etc...

Re: Solid roller lifter

I'm right at .600 with no problems with valve length.
