I think I'm going to replace the lifters with some high end solids and do the hybrid thing as we had an awful lot of valve train noise out of these Crane hydraulic rollers. Not at all happy with them, but they were the best we could source at the time. Just hope Herb at Luhn can hook me up with another cam. I really like the power and drivability of this grind.

What really sucks is if this wouldn't have happened we would have won our class and fastest Pontiac award during Drag Week.

I picked up a set of Johnson Short Travel Lifters ( ST21120PR ) for my build...

I have a set of USED COMP CAMS 857s if interested... Not solids


SPEED SAFE, NICK

I'm glad you only have cam and lifter damage. No need to deal with machine work downtime and buying some bottom end parts. I was surprised when you said that you had a rod knock and found your running an Oliver rods and Crower crank. You did not cheap out on your bottom end parts selection. Good luck
