    Default Solid roller lifters

    Building a sbc street strip deal
    Street will be very limited
    Ive got a choice between 2 sets of lifters at the right price isky red zones which have alloy tops ? Never heard of this

    ISK1371-LSH
    Or a set of comp cams endure x
    Iam aware of premature wear driving on street my plan is to eventually have 2 sets have 1 set rebuilt while other set is in
    When needed
    Which of these 2 sets would be better ?
    Thanks benno

    I'm in a similar situation. I'm looking at the Crane standard or ultra pro. The main reason being they have a pressure oil feed to the needle roller bearings which is important for (limited) street use as the older versions were only splash lubed which doesn't happen at idle but is fine for high sustained RPM. Not sure if the 2 versions you quote have this or not.

    I'm running Morel Ultra Pros , have done nearly 11000ks on them now, check my clearance every 1000ks or so, haven't budged since coming off dyno so that tells me wheels are still ok. Got 260 seat and 640 open pressures. 266/276 cam, 700 lift at the valve.
    Will be getting close to pulling out and checking/replacing. Have spare set to rebuild.

    Comp owns Crane now, bought about 3 years ago.

    Pressure lubed needle rollers. I always thought, & still do, that this was a marketing gimmick. Harley Davidson started using needle roller brg lifters in 1929. They were splash oiled. Never, ever heard of a H-D lifter failing.

    It is an engineering fact that a roller brg survives with minimal lubrication. No better example that the front wheel brgs of a car/truck, constantly under heavy load, yet they last for 000s of miles on a whiff of grease.

    A bushed roller lifter is another matter.

    Any bearing that has oil pressure fed to it is way better in my book than any bearing that is splash fed.
