VALVE LIFTER, Mechanical, each, Elgin Pro Stock lifters are engineered and manufactured by the OEM suppliers to give you the peace of mind that when you purchase an Elgin lifter it is an exceptionally designed product that is held to the highest quality standards demanded by the original equipment manufacturers, Oil metering valves are tailored to the specific engine application to deliver precise lubrication of the overhead valve train components, The ball design check valve provides outstanding response and reliability, Plunger and check ball springs are precisely balanced to allow uniform operation at high speeds, A few common sense tips that should be noted: NEVER, EVER re-use old lifters when replacing the camshaft!! This is a recipe for disaster and will wipe out a cam very quickly, Use a reputable pre-lube and apply generously to all mating surfaces to prevent wear and tear on break-in, 19578-3 engine assembly lube or similar is recommended for use on all lifters and cams, Adhere to original equipment specifications for lifter pre-load for hydraulic lifters and the camshaft manufacturers recommendation for valve lash on solid lifter applications, Make certain that the lifter bores are *true* and the lifter spins evenly during and after break in period A sticking lifter in a worn bore is a leading cause of camshaft failure, These tips will help ensure the lifters performance, reliability and durability, Hydraulic lifters require proper pre-load, Correct pre-load should be set at .020 inch - .060 inch, On an adjustable valve train, first, tighten the adjusting nut while spinning the push rod, When you feel a slight drag on the push rod, this is *zero-lash*, Next, turn the nut one-half to one full turn to achieve correct pre-load, which will vary depending on the lifter manufacturer and the thread pitch of the stud, Using a dial indicator is the best way to check proper pre-load, On a non-adjustable valve train, use an adjustable push rod and tighten the nut to zero lash, Check the length at zero lash and use push rods that are .020 inch - .060 inch longer to get to proper pre-load, Following these procedures will help to avoid excessive valve train noise due to insufficient pre-load and many other performance issues caused by too much pre-load, Solid lifters require a lash setting that is determined by the camshaft manufacturer, Always use the manufacturers recommended settings Most camshaft manufacturers will use a *hot lash* setting, When setting lash, tighten the nut until a there is a slight drag on the feeler gauge to determine the correct lash setting, After the engine is hot, repeat this step as the measurement will change depending on the material of the head and block, About Elgin IndustriesElgin Industries is a Tier One supplier of original equipment engine and chassis components to organizations such as Fiat Chrysler, Deere & Company, Ford, General Motors, Harley-Davidson, Mack and Navistar, Elgin has earned dozens of quality awards and received its certificates of registration to the IATF16949:2009 Quality Management System and ISO 14001:2004 Environmental Management System, It also has achieved Ford Q1 Quality Certification, Limited Lifetime WarrantyAll components are warranted to be free from defects in workmanship and materials for as long as the purchaser owns the vehicle into which said merchandise is installed, This limited warranty applies to the first retail purchaser only and excludes normal wear, The warranty is void if the product is not installed correctly or normal recommended established precautions and installation procedures and testing are not followed, Liability is limited to the repair or replacement of the defective part, The manufacturer retains sole discretion in determining whether merchandise is defective and assumes no responsibility for diagnosis, removal, and/or installation labor, inconvenience or any other damages or expenses, EXCEPT TO THE EXTENT APPLICABLE STATE LAW EXPRESSLY MANDATES TO THE CONTRARY, THERE ARE NO OTHER WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR USE, AND ALL OTHER OBLIGATIONS OR LIABILITIES WHETHER FOR CONSEQUENTIAL OR OTHER DAMAGES (INCLUDING DAMAGES TO RELATED PARTS) ARISING OUT OF THE ITEM’S SALE, USE, OR OPERATION ARE EXCLUDED, Neither the vendor of the item, its agent or sales representative or any other person is authorized to waive or alter any form or condition of this warranty, To request repair or replacement of a defective item, please return merchandise in its original carton to the selling dealer, A copy of the dealer’s invoice must accompany the defective item, There is absolutely no warranty on any parts used in racing applications, There is no warranty on products that have been physically altered, improperly installed or maintained, used in improper applications, abused or not used in conjunction with the proper parts,
