Feuling Lifters

Are the Feuling lifters for a TC any good? They state on their website that they're designed to be run with their oil pump but is it okay to run them with the stock oil pump? Would I be better off with the HD "B" lifters?

I probably didn't state my question very well. Let's say I got a set of the Feuling lifters way cheaper than I could buy a set of the "B" lifters...would they be okay to use with a stock oil pump and are they as good or as reliable as the "B's"? I've got a buddy who has a new set in the box and he'll let me have them for $35.00.

I have a set that I haven't used and a set of B lifters and I wanted to see the difference between the two. I took both apart and measured everything side-by-side and there was not one difference between them. The only thing I didn't measure or look at was the bypass ball and spring.

Feuling lifters

They are not worth 35 dollars in my opinion.They make more noise than any lifter I have ever used.I also run a feuling super which is doing good.Use the harley lifters more consistant results.

I have a set on the shelf with about 300 miles on them that did the same thing... Noisy when HOT, coll they were okay... Not Hot... I went to the Harley "B" lifters and they are quiet....

I have a set of AMS lifters that will go in this weekend. I can post when I ride them.

In all honesty, though, the stock 'B' lifter seem to be the prefered choice here, and less $ I think. I just want to see what the AMS lifters are all about.

Would be great to hear or not hear how they perform...I talked with Steve there today about why he believes them to be superior..
Let me know.

Cheers

I had about 40,000 miles on the feulings lifters on a mild build with stock oil pump and no problems. I changed them out to b lifters and they sound the same to me. I also took them apart and no difference. The oil hole is slightly bigger. two buddies using the AMS lifters and out of the 8 lifters two have failed. They would not pump up. AMS replaced them but it did cause down time on the builds. I think in most applications 2 failures out of 8 would not be considered acceptable.

I find that the Feuling lifters are quite noisy when the oil temperature gets to warm and hot values. Any experience with the Jims lifters?

Jims lifters

I have used jims in several Evo builds no problems.Used in a couple T/C builds no problems quiet operation.I have a buddy do a T/C build with a .630 lift woods cam and had a roller failure wiped out cams and pump so I have steered clear of them since
