Small Block John Deere Flat Tappet Lifters
Our aftermarket SB Deere flat tappet lifters were created to solve a lifter breakage issue that some of our customers were having. Our lifter is made from 52100 tool steel, a much stronger alloy than the stock lifters. We've also increased the diameter of the head to 1.420". About 0.100" larger than stock. This will allow the lifter to follow a more aggresive lift profile with out hooking the cam lobe and causing failure of the lifter or camshaft. Our flat tappet lifters are $480 for a set of 12 lifters. You would need to verify that all the lifters operate with adequate clearance of the camshaft and engine block at the point of assembly.
