Wow...thanks MUCH Jack.

How come no one was able / willing to mention that detail. Isky, Crower, Comp Cams !

Thanks again, Chrysler it is . I still like the Crower for the way that they oil the roller bearing / bushing. Or...is there any other problems with the Crower ?

Easy enough to drill a hole in each corner or close to it to get the oil back to the sump. Or even better directly above the cam so the rollers get some extra lube
Dontya just luvit when a plan comes together

Sudsy -

Please elaborate...
Drill a hole in what "corner"? There's nothing but air...above the cam, again, please explain.

Bob; more drainback holes could help, but won't totally solve the problem. The oil pump pressure is pushing oil up and out of the lifters faster than gravity can drain it back.

Mike check out the lifters that Brad at BAM in FL is making. He used to build the lifters for Crane . He is on his own now after the buy out. Many of the top engine builders are going to his stuff over Morell. Brad only deals with legit shops and no off the street business.
