Hyd Lifters
After all issues recently with my 351 cleveland, I have found that I need to replace my cam & lifters. I found a Comp cam, thumper series that the profile will suit my needs. I have run Comp cams in the past and have not been satisfied with the lifters due to frequent noise, tapping, etc.
Anyone have any suggestions other than roller type ?
Let me know.
Thanks, [/u]
I went Rhodes but they are noisy as all get out. Sorry to say it but next time I am going roller. Wink

73 Convertible - 351C/4V CC heads/4bolt/forged flat tops/comp 270/rhodes/mallory unilite/tri-power/hookers/glasspacks/c6/3.50 limited slip/Gear Vendors/Global West sub frames, strut rods and shelby style traction bars/ Rear sway bar/tilt steering (not original)

Pics of modifications included in:
I'd disassemble and flush the whole engine if your lobes are flat and lifters are concaved... Or you'll be doing the job again, only sooner...

I have them too and they are noisy indeed. They have a good reputation though so I went with them anyway.

351C 4V cc heads, 10.5 : 1 CR, 290 Herbert cam, Flat top forged pistons, forged connecting rods, Atomic efi,
C6 with Gear Vendor overdrive, 3.89 Tru Trac, Hooker Super Comp with 2 1/2" Pypes Exhaust.

hey jay,

Was this the cause of the gasket failure on the heads?
the thumper is not designed as a true performance cam, it is designed to make noise.

the best lifters are crane . . $85.00 at summit . . make sure the oil hole in the side does not come above the taper in the lifter bore at full lift.
