    Can anyone please help me identify the manufacturer of this lifter? I have a set and I want to send them in for a rebuild, just don't know where to send them. These are BB Ford if it makes any difference.
    Thanks in advance.

    There are only two lifters Iam aware of that are NOT locked in pairs. Comp, and Isky. I assume you know what the link bar on a Comp looks like, and that the ones in the pic don't have a rectangler retainer for the lock on Comp link bar, so my guess is they are Isky's which used an open fork style link bar. But I have never seen an Isky cut like that. How about rolling that thing over and another pic

    OK...thanks...just a few minutes. This was a Ken Duttweiler build, so I'd guess Isky. Big .800 roller, heavy springs, etc.

    those numbers are rockwell numbers the ones on the far right may not be crane lifters but I think they missed the heat treat process, the forks were all spreding apart had to work at it to get them out of the block. caught it just in the nick of time !

    Interesting. Maybe a cheap chinese knockoff? Long way off on the C scale.

    yep, and I think I have a set of those. And boxed and sold as Cranes. If they aren't knock offs, Crane should be ashamed!

    I got sent a pair of the Chinese hyd roller lifters back in the spring along with a chinese stainless rocker. The rocker had 2 different sizes of needles used in assembly and the roller lifter was a Morel knock off but machining quality when inspected was terrible. The sad thing about this is these are coming in the country for under $120 a set.
