If the lifter would have been in a middle section I would have drilled it out from the top and used a die grinder to grind/cut the bottom of the lifter off.  Could have welded something inside the lifter and used a back hammer to pull it out then bored and sleeved that single bore, etc.  your way was probably the easiest and least damaging.

I had a roller cam in one of my Tubbed street cars back in the day and it also dropped a few needle bearings.  I was lucky and only lost the cam and lifter.  I'm amazed at our stock roller lifters of these cars lasting hundreds of thousands of miles. 

Will Isky (that the lifter brand?) warranty the lifters for you?

These are a jesel lifter.  Some of the best .....

The problem with pulling the lifter was more the fact that is was done blind. I actually thought the roller ears were spread.

The stock lifters do great.  But let's not forget the springs and cam combo is why.  Stock springs are rated around 230lbs at max lift. Mine with the big 680 lift cam was 560lbs. The stress difference on the the needles in general can't be compared.

I realize that, still impressive considering probably stronger than hemi V springs and the many miles with reliability.  Your lifters were high quality.

Only reason I can see would be that they were in your engine last year when there was some oiling issues that shouldn't have caused lifter problems ...  but ... ?  That lifter shouldn't have failed

I talked to my local engine shop about it and they asked me how many passes I got.  I told them passes? It's my weekend cruiser. I've got about 3500 miles on them. All 4 of the guys in there smiled a little and said look no further. This is not a street combo and they were surprised I got that much out of it. They said most guys do 100-300 passes on a set and then they swap them out.

500 passes at 1/2 mile a pass is 250 miles .......


As for oiling I guess it's possible but I don't think so. I inspect all this stuff during assemblie and no lifter had any signs of wear on the rollers. As for warrenty they said to send them in. I'm sure I could get partial warrenty to keep me happy but the cam is out for ever and so are the solid lifters. So not too worried for now. Going back to a stock set up. Not hungry for the extra power and limitations that they come with.

A lot of time has passed since I last posted. Good news is I have a few new pics to post and a few stories to go with them. Some good some bad. The car is getting better and better as I learn limits and set ups. Just gonna post a bunch of pics within the next week and keep it simple.

Here is a pic of the 4 port boost solenoids. They allow for light wastegate springs yet high boost. You can run 6-7 times your gate springs with these units. Very cool product and highly recommended.
Also my new return filter from peterson for the oil return to tank
