Re: Hello all, new here, got a question

No, I did not fill the lifters. We left the valley cover off till I had the lifters adjusted. I watched the lifter cup and push rod for zero lash then turned in the pre-load. I really don't know how they, (ICH),adjusted them, but I would assume they know how. But then assuming anything with them is ...

Re: Hello all, new here, got a question

A call to Indy Cylinder Head today about the lifters. The lifters we have are the ones they want us to run in the motor. Go figure.

Re: Hello all, new here, got a question

Well the saga continues, or is it a nightmare. We readied to install the lifters and noticed the lifters have an oil hole in the push rod cup. Never thought much about but it kept bothering me, so we looked up the part numbers and sure enough they gave us hydraulic lifters for a 440 type engine that...

Re: Hello all, new here, got a question

[quoteHe, Russ, thinks the original pushrods were NOT replaced as should have been from the first time when the wrong lifters were installed, (when engine was first built). But that means they missed the bad push rods the second time they had it to repair the valve train. ] Didn'T I call that right...

Re: Hello all, new here, got a question

To update this a bit. Owner took all lifters, push rods and rocker arms/shafts to Indy yesterday. They of course could not understand what was going on. Then Russ, to there credit, told the owner that they would replace all push rods, supply new lifters and gaskets. He, Russ, thinks the original pus...

Re: Hello all, new here, got a question

wow I spent too long replying and came back to an empty page. without parts at hand a few guesses hgere possibles the quick version: lifter/pushrod combo too long. they never pumped up the lifters enough or at all before installing. then set them and ran the motor for a very short time. from experi...

Re: Hello all, new here, got a question

Excuse a numbnuts newbie question but...if the cam was wiped, wouldn't it be good procedure to dismantle and reclean every component in the motor? You know since that metal went somewhere? Or did they do that and it was not mentioned? Also, I'm looking at the top pic of the two lifters. the shapes ...

Re: Hello all, new here, got a question

I'll try to answer all your questions; Supposedly the cam manufacturer is Comp Cams. No markings that would indicate the manufacturer of either the push rods or the lifters. Flat hydraulic cam/lifters. There are no marks on anything that would lead one to believe the spring retainers are bottoming o...

Re: Hello all, new here, got a question

To follow up on this thread, the engine which is a 477CID Indy Cylinder Head product has been back to them twice. The first time, valve train noise. It lost lobes off the cam. He took it back to Indy Cylinder Head and they said they put new cam, lifters, a few pushrods, cam bearings, main and rod be...

Re: Hello all, new here, got a question

The reason I asked is because a friend bought a 426 Hemi engine from them about 2 years ago and just got it running a few months back. It had valve train noise from day one, but it would come and go. To make a long story shorter they had installed the wrong lifters in the engine when they built it. ...

Hello all, new here, got a question

I am wondering if anyone has had problems with Indy Cylinder head co. in Indianapolis, In? If this is a beloved vendor that contributes to this board, then I will withhold comment.
