So has anyone been able to find out who is actually making lifters (all types) being sold by various cam companies? I'm trying to choose wisely. Thanks Chuck

I haven’t really kept up with all of that. I do know that I’ve been using Crower for all my flat tappet stuff and Morel for my roller stuff.

C9ZX,
I was just thinking the same thing. I have a friend that has a 71 mach 1 that we are going to change the cam & lifters this winter for a little more performance. I have a Cleveland in my model A and it has a occasional lifter noise and may very well change that one to, if I could find quality parts.
I hope someone has some good sources.
Thanks, Jay

I use Crower Camsaver lifters for hydraulic flat tappets and Crower EDM lifters for solid flat tappets. Hydraulic rollers usually get Morel. Solid rollers get Morel, Crower, Isky, and Jesel.

I've had good luck with Isky parts, and before that with Crane. Ran Isky EDM soild flats for a while without issue. I use Howards rollers - one engine runs hydros, the other solid roller. Working good. Also FWIW - my experience has been such that I won't reuse any flat tappet without regard to how it's been marked and stored. Over that, I would rather sit until I can run a roller than use a flat anymore.

I believe that all of the rollers solid and hydraulic sold by Howard are from Morel. Competition Cams assembles their own solid roller lifters.

Flat tappets are a mixed bag. Once broken in they are more reliable than a roller if used with the correct springs etc. They can last practically forever if everything goes right. If it doesn't, well you know the story...
