    Question Lifter question

    How noisy are Morel hydraulic roller lifters supposed to be on startup? Are they noisier in general than other brands?

    On a cold start, mine are pretty noisy for a few seconds.

    I have'em and yup they are noisy at dead cold start...what helped me with 'running noise' was, taking them down another 1/4 turn to 3/4 total. This was recommended to me by C Straub and the fact I have Iron heads.

    If it is an aluminum headed engine you should have 3/4" to 1 full turn of preload. This usally will "fix" the issue.

    Thumbs up

    It's a steel-headed engine.

    Thanks, guys.
