    Default Lifter thread

    Its time to replace lifters... Ive pushed my luck with the Comp solid rollers long enough. Dart block Chevy... Seen talk about Morel, talked to Wags this weekend about the Crowers, and PAR Racing Engines here in town is pushing the Isky Ez roll(EZX). Wanted to see what all you engine guys are running. Any reason to stay away from any of these three? Pros/cons. Or is there another brand worth looking into? A little about my engine: 555 Chevy, Dart heads, Jesel Rockers. cam is .770/.771 291/294... Springs are 310 on the seat. I turn it regular 7800-8000 Drag Race use.

    Are you runing the .842" or .903? My recommendation: Morel UltraPro and don't look back. Tool steel body, best tolerances in the business, pressure fed and rebuildable. Isky tolerances are all over the place and I'm not convinced the EZ Roll is any "better", the Crowers are good lifters but I don't think as good as the Morels.

    I've had extremely good luck with the Morels, the Isky's, and the GS lifters. I don't think you can go wrong with any of these. Morels and Isky's are fully rebuildable which makes it nice. Morel and Jesel have the tightest of tolerances in the industry.

    Crower Severe Duty with the High pressure pin oiler option... absolutly great part... a top notch part within a resonable budget for a sportsman racer or river hotrod guy. On my own river hotrod/race use 489 I had 9 years on a set with 280seat .765 lift... 7700 rpm on the bottle... approximatly 30 miles per river trip and 10-15 trips a year.. plus a few njba events mixed in per year for fun. Even at 9 years, they didn't "fail", but just started to get that feeling in the bearing on one that it was ready to fail. I think you'd be hard pressed to find another lifter that would hold up endurance-wise without going into a whole "next level" of price range... such as the jesels... which are nice parts as well.

    I have a few friends that sear by the Iskys and swear by them, but I'm still not totally convinced until I see how they hold up over time on something I can see for myself, rather than what is being advertised.
