This is another "it depends" question. Without knowing how badly the lifter has been damaged, there is no way to have an opinion worth listening to. I would say if it is as bad as this lifter, your cam is shot.

That is because you don't buy the correct studs!

Buddy had his caravan parked for weekend and squirrels got to wiring, they use soy bean based plastic for the insulation. chewed up the injection harness that fried the ecu when he tried to start it. He diagnosed it and sent it to dealership under their warranty. dealership wanted to replace a head gasket. he told them to replace the ecu and program it. he picked it up and It still had a miss after ecu replacement. He replaced the the injector harness himself because he didn’t trust dealership and that took care of the problem.

you get a thin one or pay more for one that just has the bulky casing. except it is shiny not black like an original.
I don't really think you are going to find one not made in china today.
I would just pick up one from the local parts store with the lifetime warranty so you can swap it out if it craps out later.


Actually saw some last night that were still the old mechanical, which I would not use anyway.


iagree mechanicals are easily identified by the resistors on the back which you likely know.

Refer to EVR's

Great question and suggestion. I will try it. Thx!

The last time I saw a deal like that, it was in the return spring & cable mounting.
Some intake/butterfly combos are pretty tight, and opening/closing should always be checked for interference on a build.


I am using the AR Engineering spring and throttle cable kit for the RPM. I borrowed a throttle cable from a 80’s Dodge D150 truck so it’s a bit longer to accommodate for the intake height .I know it all sounds right but I could have something screwed up. I think maybe I’ll remove the throttle cable and kickdown linkage from the carb and see if it returns by hand and try that route?

You still in Sandpoint bro? We’ve never got to meet. How big does the Ribeye need to be to get you to stop by my digs out in the valley and help me sort this out?

I'll agree with both and the throttle cable adjustment. The cable should have a small amount of up and down movement when on low idle. Timing can be watched with a light to see if its returning to the initial setting or 'floating" up

I have timimg control on the dash. I will try some autolites some time and see if there is a difference in AFR, etc.

I ran 7's on the stree for a summer and the only difference was coloring of the plug. Also a good choice for a 150 shot : D

So what are the determining factors when a plug is deemed to hot or too cold?

You Say flat lifter? they are supposed to be. Actually should have a very slight crown. If you meant cupped or dished on the cam end, by how much? A pic would help a lot. If severely cupped there's little chance of it living for any period of time. twocents

I believe you need to use a lifter.

I'd bet that lobe is damaged. Also, whatever metal was removed ran through the engine, meaning at least the bearings.
I hope I'm wrong, but I'd at least look around inside; what's the oil & the filter media look like ?

Compare the dead lifter cam lobe to a couple of the others that are still ok? Be careful to not mix them up if you take any out. Should be a smooth wear pattern that does not cover the whole width of the lobe. Also you can remove the intake and pressurize the lifters by rotating the motor by hand while watching to ensure the new lifter spins at the same rate as the others as another way to help confirm.
