    I agree..... second choice would be Crane. The Morel lifter requires a little more knowlege on lifter bore size and machining experience. You have to measure & inspect all the lifter bores. But it is worth it if you are looking for every last bit of HP from your camshaft.

    How have you found that they differ from other lifters?

    I strongly agree with Fast Rat. IMO, the people who engineer a cam went through the trouble and countless hours engineering a cam profile and know more about a particular cam than we do, otherwise we'd be R&D'ing and engineering cams. That being said, it's always best to buy the cam & kit as the kit will come with the correct lifters and springs specified by the manufacturer to be ran with that particular cam.

    Just my $0.02.

    I can agree with the above however there are come custom Cam grinders that don't manufacture lifters...what then?

    Not everything from Crower is perfect for every application, such as there Enduro steel roller rockers, their very heavy IMO, but their product is very well engineered and consistant. So far no roller lifter failures for me, thanks to Crower

    It is common in this industry for several companies to buy the same product and put it in a different box with a different name. . . .I know first hand with product I make and supply to the industry. Lifters are no different.
