So I guess it's a hydro you shimmed up to make it into a mechanical lifter???

I tried that on the .842 Rollers from Shubeck when they sent me a hydrauilic Roller X set for a Harley Twin Cam. Instead of Solids. I think it was one of their first sets.

This is an extremely nice high end development and a first in this form as far as I know. Congrats on a job well done!
The specified weight of 53 gram is incredible. Very well designed!!

The lifterweights you mention however for those known components seem a bit off (?)
My bushed ceramic type 1 lifters weigh in at 51,5 gram. Type 4 ceramics are about 65 gram I read from Charles somewhere (?). Your type 4 ceramics should weigh 83 gram (30 more than 53), which I find hard to believe.
My old stock set of type 4 lifters weigh in at about 98 gram, so they can't be really 100 gram lighter than 53 gram lifters :?

I understand that you are enthousiastic about the roller lifters, but don't overdo it haha!

Best regards,
T4T: Type 4 Turbo engine, under construction

well, just one step at a time. IF somebody wants one, it could be made.

after all, there wasn't one for a T4..........
