My engine has some broken roller lifters(Comp). The installer put put 5 out of 8 in backwards. We found lifter parts in the pan when changing oil. Need to upgrade to Isky Reds for TFS A heads. Lift is .800". What dealers carry Reds?

Isky Reds

cool40,

I have always liked '40 coupes since my Dad had a 276 flathead that turned 14.0s in 1960s.

Crower is on my list as per searching through the threads. Everyone's experience is real important to me when I buy parts.

I do not want to just put anything in the 605.

Thanks for the reply.

I like the comp lifters and I have tried quite a few diff ones ,the old comps were ok before they did the oiler hole for the needles ,after the hole was added the life has gone up a lot. I use the offset lifters with a .920 cam and the centered ones at .850 with very good luck .

steve1071,

Thanks for your reply. You have smoken 60' times!

I know I spend a lot of time researching parts before I buy but so far they have been correct. This is no knock against Comp since most were installed backwards and placed in a bind.
