Solid lifters in a hydraulic block? EA71
Posted 30 March 2012 - 05:06 PM
Anyway, Can you use a solid lifter setup on a block that was origionally designed for hydraulic lifters?
Reason for asking: I want to use solid lifters on a hot cam. I have two blocks (one solid lifter, one hydraulic). The block that looks in best shape is the hydraulic one.
The lifter passages are different.
Hydraulic block has sleaveless passages with large oil galleries
Solid block has sleaved passages with smaller oil galleries.

I think in the hydraulic motor it obviously has large oil feeds to fill the lifters and perhaps the added lubrication negated the need for the sleeves.
Having extra lubrication to a solid lifter wouldnt seem to cause any negative affects.
I would say as long as the lifters share the same dimensions it should be ok to do it.
Now let's see if someone who has done it chimes in.
