are these a good idea? Would they allow the use of a cam with greater intensity (more aggressive lobe) as the ad implies?
Mike Goble said:I think the claim for allowing more radical profiles is somewhat misleading. The main limiter in the cam profile is the diameter of the lifter, larger being better.
Well then maybe you should ask Bruce to send ya a catalogue because the "magazine ad" I looked at was Crowers very own Catalogue and it does indeed mention they will EDM the lifters of other manufactures if you send them to them...IgnitionMan said:"WELL"...I KNOW Bruce Crower, and for years, he has taken lifter bodies that people send Crower, and has the .021 hole EDM'd in the base. YOU HAVE TO CALL THEM AND ASK FOR THIS SERVICE, NOT JUST READ A MAGAZINE AD.
I havent formed an opinion yet that is why I was askingIgnitionMan said:Do as you wish, but two things, don't shoot the messenger, and THINK before you form an opinion, that non-thinking opinion may well be wrong.
It's not required for normal spring pressures and the EDM lifters are quite a bit more expensive than normal lifters.Scooter said:BTW if it is so good to have a hole in the bottom of the lifter why aren't all lifters made this way? I mean that hole is super easy to make when they are manufacturing the lifter and to me it seems like a no brainer to have a hole. Even stock applications could have one.
What is it that makes one man's opinion posted on a Nova site any more/less dubious than that of a magazine publisher's??IgnitionMan said:Why is it that people act just like lemmings rushing to the edge of the cliff to leap off in a group whenever one reads some "test" or article done by a dubioous source in some magazine, as completely gospel?
