Hi Guys

I bought a Melling MTF-1 camshaft. Along with that I bought Hydraulic Lifters to go along with this Cam.


Are the Hydaurlic lifters compatible with my camshaft

I'm a newbie at re-building my 289 engine. So please replie if you will in a simple way in order that I may follow your suggestions.

The cam is a hydraulic flat tappet cam so the lifters are NOT rollers. The matching Melling number is JB-900
