The way I understand it and I ain't no wrench, it's supposed to, at the very least, quieten some of that danged tapping noise that HD's are so famous for. Some tap, some don't, some are loud, some are quiet. I have the loud tapping. Had dealership and private wrenches listen to it and the genral consensus was "Thats the twin cam, ain't it sweet??"

Hey Ralph,
What let you know the lifter went bad? No more clicking or did it seize up? My 01' clicks but has no signs of failure. Thanks for the info.

My 2000 Fatboy had a bad lifter tap. Put new 60 weight oil in it when I added a new oil cooler and it quieted down a good bit.
