solid roller lifters

looking on advice on which brand of solid roller lifters for my 406 sbc, i already have the cam installed and ready to spend some more money, i was thinking about a set of Howard's, i see there are ones that are +.300 taller but not sure if i need them or just the standard height, any suggestions on a good reliable set for the street, open spring pressure is just about 500 lbs with 1.6 rockers, not racing but since i live in the country i like to get on it now and again, i have been running flat tappet solids so please dont suggest going to a hydraulic cam,any suggestions?

Isky solid bushing lifers are the most rugged.

Yes, Isky Red Zone EZ Roll solid roller lifters.

Isky Red Zone EZ Roll Max mechanical roller lifters have solid bushings rather than needle bearings.

.3 taller is to shorten the push rod which stiffens it. If you're going for really high revs this is a must, but there is a trade between a heavier tappet and a stiffer push rod.

I would call Isky and ask for their recommendation of part number, depends on the block, the cylinder head, etc.
They must have 250 parts numbers for SBC lifters

Yes, and the heads might appreciate an offset PR location.

I have read these comments several times. I don't see where you say you installed a roller cam. Is your cam a roller cam? Not trying to be a wise guy, but, it is important!

yes it is a solid roller, it is installed in an engine i am building for next spring, been buying parts as i go along since the prices are crazy when you convert Canadian money to U.S., by the time i purchase and have the parts shipped to Canada the Isky roller lifters alone will be better part of a G-note,old saying you want to play you gotta pay,

you can buy discounted parts from engine builders instead of piece mealing the engine together. Let them pick the cam specs(a lot smarter than using a custom grinder) and ask for the complete kit including gaskets,chain, maybe balancer etc. There box of everything is or can be a good deal
