    This is common mate. I've had one for years and not used it. Lifters with a link bar are the go. But of course they cost $

    Yes, specific to Holden V8.
    Morel part# 5337 thats for the hydraulic roller.
    Morel part# 5343 thats a solid roller, its also around $50 cheaper.

    You can get them from straubtechnologies.com.. I think kavanagh auto parts is a dealer for morel in VIC, but I havent called them for pricing.

    That actually sounds OK. $650. Considering they are "reuseable". Wonder if there is any damage to the cam? Do the Holdens come with Dogbones, like a Chev?

    Yes, they have the dog bones and the steel 'spider tray' holds them in place...

    Thanks Paul, I completely forgot Morel made Holden specific hydraulic roller lifters although it's too late now, I just yesterday ordered Cranes for some planned future upgrades/changes.
