What are the best flat tapet hyd. lifters you can buy?

Rhodes lifters were popular, but relly more of a gimmic than anything. All they really were was out of spec lifters that someone found a niche for and capitalized on with some good marketing. Thing is, under the right conditions, they actually worked!
If God is your co-pilot, change seats!
Acts 2:38, the perfect answer to the perfect question.
I'm having good results with the Comp Cams Pro Magnum lifters. They have a retaining plate instead of a clip...it WILL NOT come out.
However, you only preload them 0.002-0.004" (zero to 1/8 turn) according to Comp Cams instructions. From this I'm guessing that they're an anti pump up design.
Crower i believe i have a couple new sets from ss engine .also have studded block ,crank and brand new pistons and rods for ss set up apba stamped
AC Delco P/N 5232720. This is the GM/Delphi hyd lifter with the 'hard iron base'. It looks like a two piece. Pretty much the best in regards to not wearing out like the other aftermarket and/or import lifters and can run to 7k (small block chevy) if you use 1/8 to no more than 1/4 turn pre-load.
Can get these from any GMPP dealer like here: http://www.sdparts.com/product/52327...licLifter.aspx
