Comp 836 lifters

Post  460Dave on April 13th 2015, 10:53 am

Is there a difference between an older (circa 2000) Comp 836 lifter and a new one? My old ones are due for a rebuild, but I'm wondering if there's a better option.

The newer stuff has pressure feed for the bearings, look in the bottom of the band on them if you see a small hole on the bottom they are the latest ones per my knowledge.

It's a very small hole and hard to see.

When it comes to sizing and quality it is hard to beat a Morel lifter.

Dave,do you have a picture of those?I think the last pair i put in my engine have that hole but not sure?I remember a very small hole in the lifter in the top part of the body where it turns back toward the center of the lifter.I guess it's hard to explain without a picture?Thanks

How big a deal is the pressurized oilers vs non pressurized ones in a 800lb spring deal?

IMO a big deal for longevity. The comp 836 stuff is ok with light springs and small street lobes. If your running 800# stuff get a better lifter.

I've trashed numerous sets of them over the years. They tend to spread it the forks that hold the roller wheel and then it gets ugly.

If the engine is going to see alot of idle time, street strip, then you REALLY need to run pressure fed oiling lifters. If it is a drag engine only the need for pressure fed oiling lifters goes down. A good maintenance program on either is a must.

X2 . At 800 open load a better lifter would be good if you have the budget.

Keep in mind too that there are Comp 836's that are machined incorrectly for big Ford use and they will dump oil pressure as the lifter approaches max lift. The cutout above the wheel is too tall. The new more expensive Comp lifters cure this problem. There was a thread from last summer with pictures on the other forum about this topic.
