Tore my 120 r down to install a diff. set of cams.
this what I found @ 15,000 miles.these are the
SE lifters that come stock in the 120 r crate motor.
I ran these with the stock +.030 SE pushrods.

Vern Ott.
Vern has been doing lifters for years. velva touch is the main company.
from what I understand these lifters I got, are a line Vern sells to racers. local racer swears by them.

Valve train is real quiet,until it hits 280 deg head temp.then there is some noise from the roller rockers.
hog bag
it looks to me like the case harding is flaking on one lifter.while the others have worn it off completely. Someone else mentioned they might have been too hard.

I have seen issues with SE lifters like this. I can't believe they charge 250+ for a set of these. I have also seen them not pump up in a new build. The "big" hd shop here pushes these things like crack, they won't even stock anything else.
No way it had amsoil in it, amsoil would have prevented this and gave the motor an extra 15hp......j/k:redrolf:

Jim: Hard to tell from the pics but any chance the cam is transfering to the lifter roller instead?

You will like those lifters,they are made for high lift cams like yours.
Set them @ .080 preload and let it eat...:)
Thats what Im told. Alot easier than installing travel limiters and I got the lifters shipped for under $56. Cant beat that.

Fine and dandy but after two attempts I still don't have 4 matching lifters. They told me they look different but will work the same.:whatever: Not impressed with Comp Cam.

Looked at all 4 and they are all the exact same. Ive used Comp Cams hydraulic and solid rollers in my sbc's with zero issues.
