Are you going to send in just the pair or the whole set?

Figured I might as well send the whole set.
Good thinking..

So when you get them back, will you modify the bodies?
Wonder what they will weigh before and after the clearancing?

Absolutely.  I don't plan to remove much metal.
Am I completely out to lunch in thinking some weight could be removed from the valve train here?
May not be enough to be significant?
It's on the cam side?

Yes, some weight could be removed.  I just don't see it being significant for my application.  Plus, I can't go very high or it will expose the lifter band above the lifter bore.  The early non-roller blocks have a shorter lifter bore.  I will be limited to what I can do.

Are you sure you should be removing any with the shorter lifter bores?

I'm not sure.  I will measure before I grind on them..  I might ask Comp to replace the bodies if the band is lower in the newer bevel cut stuff.

Lifters cam back the other day and look brand new since they polish them up as well as rebuild them.  Bill was $188 shipped back to me.  Don't remember what shipping was to Comp though.  It's a good idea to keep the box when you buy solid lifters.  Makes it easy to package them up when they need to be rebuilt.

Ugly?  Easy now -- that's my baby and it's got lots of unique character!  When I drop that built 445" stroker in it you won't have any time to "pull over to let me pass" because I'll have already blown past you when you figure out what the hell was that loud noise behind you . . .

Did you have them rebuilt under the guise of being a comp dealer or just mailed them as being "Nate"?

What was the turnaround time from when they were sent?

Don't you have the old style without the oiling mods?

Just sent them as Nate the home garage tinkerer.  It was about three weeks.  Old style lifter band.  These do have the small hole to send pressurized oil from the lifter band to the roller bearings.

Dude!

Some seem to think so. LOL

You should have sent them as Nate The Extraordinaire.   I am sure that they would have given you a "special" price.  LMAO on floor

I wasn't sure as I thought I once heard that only Comp dealers could do it.  Looks like something I should consider over the winter as mine has a few hundred street miles on them and several hundred track runs.  

Thanx!

Anybody can send them in these days.  I believe you can send them in individually as well.  You even get a specific guy to talk with the progress on them to.  Matt Summerfield was the tech handling my lifters.
