    Sounds pretty nifty. I'd consider giving them a spin if I was in the market. Just a babbit bearing really, oil fed from the lifter gallery.

    Default isky lifters

    i have used isky roller lifters for years with my blown 598's they had bad bearings in the past, they were the only cause of engine failure that i have had in 7 years. They have changed the bearings since then. I now have the second gen bearings no failures yet. The new ones look good.

    Yes, I have them in our purple race boat engine and I have them in my blown gas 588 Chevy in my lake boat. Both sets are new enough that I have no idea of longevity yet. They look like a real good deal. They will definitely take some of the slack out of the valve train. I'm running about 350 lbs of seat pressure and over 950 lbs of open pressure so it should be good test of their durability.

    A friend built 2 seperate drag racing engines, both had those in them and both failed right away. Isky had a bad batch go out the door and they know about it. Apparently they made it right and replaced everything that got wiped out. There are others out there using them with good results from what I have read on other forums.

    Im running LSM .937 keyways and Im very happy with them so far.

    Thanks for the reply. I guess I'm the genie pig here. But I've always had my best luck with Isky valve train parts. I know I'm sure scared of the new ones from China that comp is selling now. I'll let you know if I run into any trouble.

    I am running the EZ-ROLL in the motor of my race boat, the first set the bushings went out after just a few runs. Isky took care of everything and the new ones are holding up fine. I'm running about 1050lbs over the nose and just under 400 on the seat. I also have several engines with the red zones both drag race and endurance applications and are really happy with them. I send them in to be rebuilt after two or three seasons depending on useage.

    What oil are you using in your engines?
    I usually break in with Kendall GT-1/GMESO, then switch to Mobil one.

    In the race engine I'm running the Joe Gibbs XP1. I have not been happy with cam wear in the past so this go around I'm trying this. It is supposed to have a very good additive package that will extend lifter and cam lobe wear. Before I was running Synergyn and was happy with everything but lobe wear. The endurance motors I'm still running the Synergyn and quite happy with it. I have one endurance motor that I'm trying the Brad Penn oil in, interested to see the results have heard good things about the Brad Penn products.

    If im not mistaken the easy roll standard with all red-zone lifters i thought that was the point of them.
