Category : A- Small Block "LA" : Lifters

COM 8043-16




These are oil thru type solid roller lifters designed for the older "LA" blocks.

When using this lifter with a Magnum block and Magnum heads where pushrod oiling is required,  there needs to be a slot cut from the groove in the side of the lifter up to the oil hole in the side of the lifter. We can provide this service for an additional fee. Call  for details if you are using a Magnum block.

When using #828-16 and #8043-16 lifters, you will need to relieve the valley area of the block to obtain link bar clearance.

Before purchasing the lifters, be sure to check the lifter bores in your block.

The photo above shows an unmolested 340 small block. As pointed out by the arrows, some of the lifter bores are chamfered, or counter-bored. We do not know why Mother Mopar chose to do this. As you can see they are randomly bored to differing depths. The problem with this is that when you want to retrofit your block to a hydraulic roller cam the lifters that you need to use may come up high enough that the oil groove around the outer perimeter of lifter becomes exposed into this chamfer. This is not acceptable. If your block has these chamfers, either find another block or give us a call.
