    Default Isky hydraulic lifter question???

    I have a set of Isky 3970-HYRT lifters. I was going to run them in a mark IV. I now have a dart based 540. I was told by Isky that they will work in a Dart block. I didn't think they would work in Darts tall body lifter block. They are reboxed Merrels I guess. Also, how much lift cam I run for a 6500 rpm motor. I am running a set of Jessel pro 1.8s on a set of AFR 357s. Thanks in advance!

    The reason we have tall lifters is becasue OEM hyd rollers are taller. A Morel link bar lifter will fit in a Mark 4 or a GEN5/6. Morel lifters built after Jan 1 2014 have the new valving design. For any sustained runs I would recommend this lifter.

    No, the Isky's will not work in the Dart block without notching the block for the link bar. Like Chris posted, Morel does have a lifter that will.

    Thanks, problem is I own them and Isky only carries that part number. I am actually going to run the 540 in a 69 chevy short bed, sold or selling my boat stuff. I may just have to notch the block then. I understand the oil galley is in the same spot but the lifter hole is taller. The lifters I have are the Morels with the .750 wheel but since Isky only offers this lifter I am stuck with them, maybe I will be able to trade them for some solids and forget about the hydraulic stuff. Thanks

    If it's a Morel lifter, it'll work in the Dart block and the picture in Isky's catalog looks like a Morel.
    If you can post a pic of what you have we can say for sure.
    The Morel 4603 (which is what this most likely is) will take high .600" lift and 7000+rpm with the right springs and correrct rocker geometry.

    If it's a hyd roller with a tie bar it's a Morel.

    I posted pics in my original post. The heads have 1.8 Jessel Pro rockers. I was hoping to run .700 lift or very close to it, the AFR 357s are big for my combo but I own them. I was also wanting to make sure the 1.8 will work with hydraulic lifters. I'll have to ask Chris to spec me a cam. Money is tight right now, I lost my job last Wednesday. I also have a new ISKY roller that I can mock up, but it is only 600 lift and is probably too small to have Isky regrind for the lift I need. Thanks for the help guys!

    Here is a Morel 4603 BB Chevy retro hyd. roller lifter. You be the judge. This will work in all Gen and Mk blocks, Dart, World, Bluprint, etc.
    You need to run 200-225 seat pressure and 500-550 open pressure with as much cam as you're going to want to run. I don't think you'll need any where near as much cam as you think, but I'll leave that up to Chris.

    They seem to run best with 3/4 - 1 full turn, 10w40 oil max.

    Live and learn. Looking at the picture Jungle posted that wasn't up there, and the hyd rollers I had seen before came out of Shaver Engineering, they did not fit Dart and Gen 6 blocks.
    Good to know.

    Actually Shaver has some that will work with the .300" taller bore.

    Thanks again. I would like the engine to make 800hp, which shouldn't be that hard with the 357 head I hope. I just know that the head needs as much lift as I can get if I am running a hydraulic roller. But I am not a builder, just an assembler and internet troll
