Currently Available from BAM, Comp Cams, Iskendarian, and Morel ... Vigilante Performance provides both flat tappet and roller lifter designs. Flat lifters, which are typically found in vintage vehicles, have a relatively flat face that slides on the camshaft. Meanwhile, roller lifters have a wheel-like roller that follows the camshaft’s outline. Since the 1990’s, nearly all OHV engines have come standard with hydraulic roller lifters. Racing engines, primarily, will have either solid flat tappet or solid roller lifters. Hydraulic roller lifters can be either a link bar or stock replacement style.

Solid lifters, must have the valvetrain lash adjusted mechanically from time to time. Hydraulic lifters rely on pressurized engine oil to automatically adjust lash internally, so there’s no need for periodic adjustment.

Comp Cams
The lifter is one of the most critical pieces in an engine combination. Whether it be mechanical or hydraulic, flat tappet or roller, the lifter determines how the camshaft will react to the balance of the engine combination. As operating range increases, lifter and valve lifter float become serious considerations. Increased spring pressure can sometimes be the answer, but more often than not, the ability of the lifter to manage the load is the key to success or valve train failure. COMP Cams® offers all common lifter designs, as well as the new Evolution Series of Retrofit Roller Lifters. more info
