Thanks Aaron. That's what I thought in respect to replacing anything else.
Also, I did read the write up about cam installs on your site and that's the answer I was looking for. Thanks!

I got the S&S premium lifters because one of my lifters would not pump up like it should. I have to say I really like them. They are quitter.

Seriously considering these but damn near as much as the cams. Are they worth it? Would you buy them again?

Yes, I would buy again. But I will probably never need to replace them. They are really good.

I like your attitude!

That's not an accident, either, we've put a ton of work into making that happen. We don't put race motors on the street.

So keep saying it can't be done. We'll keep right on doing it

or you can get adjustable pushrods and then you don't have to remove the heads. I'm guessing that works also for Sportsters? I'm sure someone will tell me if I am right or wrong here. Sorry new here, and haven't done much with Sportsters as of yet. I also have TC motors so i know more from that.

oh yeah, the original are one piece. Maybe gut them out, the covers and the pushrods. just a thought. It's early here so who knows whats I;m thinking yet. lol

Help me!!!!

My rocker boxes are off. Pushrods are out. So what, cut the tubes out, George?
