Tech Question

Ed Clemens, san antonio, TX, 1970, ply, cuda, 426hemi

Can I use Erson Hyd lifters part # E914641 in my new MP 426 Hemi block?These lifters are for the 413/426w/440 RB, according to the Ersoncatalog……

Ed-

They will fit and work okay. But you should know that all Hemis were factoryequipped with lifters 0.0005″ smaller than wedge lifters. This was done toimprove high-RPM oiling, but results in less low-RPM oil pressure due to theincreased internal “bleeding”.

Since you said “hydraulic”, I doubt that this engine will see a lot ofhigh-rev use. So the bottom line is: use ’em.
