Has anybody replaced the link bar on roller lifters ? What I am thinking here is this . I have a basically new set of C.C. lifters for a BBO .842 dia. I am thinking of changing the cross bar to BBC . Any tips would be appreciated.

What cross bars?:D

Yea, a whole lot of problems go away...... if you can afford it ;)

I agree. Just harder to un-install the $$ from my wallet.:D
True dat....

Promptly followed by the following, " HOW MUCH ARE THESE THINGS?!!!"
As they say, if you have to ask, you can't afford it. Unless you have a major hook up, bring your block and $5k to your favorite machine shop. They'll let you know if there's any $$ left. Might be, but it won't be much.

Ive been running mine for quite a while and they come out looking/feeling awesome each year and would not hesitate to run them again. I think they are money well spent. Ive got LSM's and Ive got my moneys worth. They were $1840

That's not including machine work or bushings right? It's been awhile but I believe I paid 300+ for the bushings and 600 for machine work. But it's all been money well spent so far. Pull the heads last weekend and they look like they haven't even been ran.

Make sure that the Olds-applicable lifters features (such as the location of the oiling holes, etc.) are in the same location as the BBC lifters.

I agree keyed lifters are the ultimate and $1840 is a decent price but that's just the half of it....

... man you guys must have way better machine shop hook up than I do. It's been a while but I was pretty certain the block machine work was close to $2k alone including the "good" bushings (whatever that means!!) for keyed lifters. 904's with link bars were about half the total cost of keyed lifters... I'm probably wrong though...
It's a good thing my POS blower motor is happy with an old Duntov 3/4 race cam. No way I can roll with you ballers :D

If alls the same with the only difference being the link bars than why sell a 250.00 dollar set of lifters for 50 bucks just to buy them again .comp sells the link bar for 3.00 so 25.00 I can get a set for the new motor . Im all over that! And the good part is I know the history of these. I will check against sbc rollers and get back. Or better yet just call C.C.

One of the machine shops near us did the keyways (bought bushings and installed them), o-ringed the bock, bored the block, checked the line hone, and drilled the block and installed 55mm roller bearings for right at 2 grand. They are a decent shop that just happened to build a multi time comp eliminator champs engines. Then again, the shop that did your engine does AWESOME work.
