Stabilize Your Valvetrain With Howards Cams Black Venom Lifters

Lifter failure can destroy an engine in a hurry, so it’s important to use the right parts. If your engine is using a solid roller lifter setup, the correct lifter becomes very important if you want to get the most performance possible. Howards Cams Black Venom solid roller lifters are perfect for the challenging environment a race engine presents to a lifter.

A racing engine is going to punish a set of lifters thanks to elevated RPM levels and higher loads. Tie bar lifters are a great way to combat these different types of stress on a solid roller lifter. The tie bar lifter will be squared up on the camshaft better and make sure the valvetrain stays aligned. When you’re spinning a high-horsepower engine to the moon, having a stable valvetrain is critical and that’s why you need to use the right lifter.

Howards Cams designed its Black Venom solid roller lifters to work with high valve spring pressures, big rocker arm ratios, and elevated RPM levels. The lifters have a DLC coating and use a pressurized oiling system to make them extra durable. Each lifter’s body diameter is .842-inches, has a .470-inch axle, and lobe capacity of a 1.00-inch roller unit. The lifters can also be rebuilt when it comes time for engine maintenance.

The Black Venom solid roller lifters are currently available for small-block Chevy, big-block Chevy, and LS-style engines. You can learn more about these lifters, see their specs, and check availability right here on the Howards Cams website.
