SOME OILY BITS


SLAMMER

Recommended Posts

Motor was dropped out yesterday. I understand it was quite a oily mess below. Had some small oil leaks. Along with a failed lifter after only two months. post-1350-0-69355800-1398895317_thumb.jp I'm going to rebuild with forged parts so I can add a bit more HP. SLAMMER

Here you go!

The car is back to being a roller while the motor work is being done.

I'm going to pick it up to allow Phil more room to work.

It was scared of me kicking its ass after only being installed two (2) months ago.

I WOULD BE PISSING TOO. IF I JUST SPENT $1,700 to get them replaced and didn't look any further as to why the past lifters failed.

(Secret venting)

Last I heard, Brian had been seeing inconsistency issues with the slow leakdown rate (SLR) lifters and was considering not carrying them anymore.

I would go with Morel 5290s and be done with it.

Good luck with whatever you decide, Slammer.
