A while yet damn it..

I've now decided to swap to a full-bodied Morel Ultra Pro bushed lifter to go with these bronze bushings.
The Iskys are a good lifter, but there is just not enough surface area on them.
Even though I will have longer bores to maintain alignment and prevent skewing, I fear they will still eat into the bronze bushings -just like the repaired #5 exh did while on the dyno.

Between the wheel and waist band, there is just a 1/4" of contact.


~30 mins of dyno time only. In the worn area, 0.001" of diameter lost!


The Morels appear to be about double that ~1/4", plus additional surface in the waist band area.


Another 1.5 Gorillas.

I still reckon the fully skirted stock standard GM/Delco design is best..

You're very patient Steve. I imagine the weather is starting to get cooler (and wetter?) in Melbourne now.
Will it be a goer by Spring / Summer?

Those Delco units must have a smaller diameter roller(?)
Does a larger roller equal more bearing area and therefore a better/stronger roller lifter?

It's just another attempt to try and make it right.. I hope that it works..

Morels are a pretty good lifter and Jesels are good too.
The reasons I have chosen Morel is obviously the full body with no oil-band cut-away on their loaded sides. They also have bronze bushings instead of needle bearings, their pushrod cup is the same height as the existing Iskys (within 0.010-0.015") so my existing pushrods will still be the correct length, and like the "oversized" Iskys, their actual diameters are ~0.09035-37", so I can have the bores finished at 0.09050-52" on the tooling available here.

The first set of Isky "904s" I received were ~0.9025", and believe it or not, that 0.001" was too small for the shop to hone finish the bores at 0.09040" -unless I spent another US$500 on a smaller BHJ reaming tool when Isky swapped the sets for free.

Do you know your seat and open spring pressures on your engine Allan? If they are similar to mine, then I expect, with a Mark4 block, Bowtie or not, you'll be doing what I am or swapping to a flat tappet or a roller compatible block.
The only way to make this retro-roller on a not-really-compatible block last longer, is to lower the pressures, which will mean a cam swap.
If you just take out spring, the lifters will float and that will surely destroy them.

Anyway. GM did such a sh!thouse job at documenting their cars back then. It's no wonder the frauds are everywhere. That pisses me off too.
any update on the 65 mustang convertible court case involving this lot

I had it idle at ~850-900 before..
With regards to the cam and associated bs re lifters, it's been advised that ~1100 would be better for improved oiling ("splash & throw-off").
Maybe that's necessary for needle bearings and not so much for bushings...
We'll see.

Yeah, heard similar regarding him and that he's looking for work.
Maybe he can use pics of the work he did for me as a reference!
I have a few great examples and will gladly submit!
Any idea who Rene Pedersen is?
