Solid Lifter Conversion Kit Made from the finest 4130 chromoly steel Manufactured to exact OEM dimensions Increased HP & valvetrain control at high RPM Fully adjustable - No need for shims (even with reground camshafts) Heat treated surface for maximum durability Black oxide conversion coated Available for many sport-compact application BLE Solid Lifters have specific enhancements over the factory and aftermarket hydraulic units. Only the finest 8620 Aerospace and 4130 chromoly steel is used to manufacture this product. Each assembly incorporates a fine-threaded lash adjuster, which features a radiused pivot head, built to exact OEM tolerances for use with the factory rocker arm. The lash adjuster is heat treated to increase surface hardness for maximum durability & wear resistance. It is locked in place to the lifter body using an 18-8 SS jam nut. The lifter body is cryogenically treated and its outside diameter is precision machined to match the cylinder head slot and oil passage clearances. Furthermore, the assembly is then chemically coated with black oxide for lubricity, corrosion protection, and improved wear & anti-galling characteristics. The solid lifter conversion replaces the factory hydraulic lifters and comes with all necessary hardware for a straightforward installation. These Conversion Kits are perfect for anyone upgrading the factory valvetrain and/or camshafts in their sport compact engine. A solid lifter valvetrain is more consistent, opens to a greater extent, and closes faster than a hydraulic setup. This translates into better control of the valvetrain, as well as more duration spent at higher flow valve lifts. In essence, more high rpm power is found by eliminating the physical "collapse" (and resulting power loss) experienced by hydraulic lifters at certain rpm thresholds and valvespring pressure levels. The stronger your valve springs, the sooner this collapse will occur with hydraulics! Likewise, fluctuations in oil pressure will affect the operation of your hydraulic lifters, not so with this solid lifter conversion. As a result, the BLE Solid Lifters allow for higher spring pressures to be run, as well as, more aggressive camshaft lifts. So go ahead, REV IT UP! Aside from the increased horsepower and potential to turn your engine faster, drivability and low rpm power are also increased by closing the valves quicker and thus keeping cylinder pressures higher. Your motor will even idle better and rid itself of the dreaded "lifter tic", which is usually caused by bad hydraulic lifters, or thicker oil weights.
