Everyone I know calls them Risky !! not Isky I've seen several failures

Morel makes the best lifter by a long shot, several companys just put their name on it.

I have run the Isky Red Zone in my 463 sbc and they didnt last as long as the Crower Severe Duty that i had always used. Was not worth the extra money so i went back to Crower.

David: with all due respect..i think you meant to say "IN Your Opinion" Morel makes the best lifter by a long shot.....i do not think there is any documented material that supports that Morel is the best lifter on the market by a long shot...
if so please provide this. i could be wrong....

as always i appreciate your input,

thanks Brian.

These lifters in motors which would be called lifter eaters (big duke/chief motors) last twice as long as a comp or isky, 375 passes on one set I know of and took them out and looked perfect.

I've seen almost every brand break but the most common one's to fail are isky and comp. I know even isky were telling people they were having a problem with the oiling holes, a buddy of mine had less then 20 passes on a set that went bad.

Its a well known fact that several companys buy these "new design" lifters from Morel. My new lunati's are morels.

It has been awhile since I have looked at a Lunati Roller Lifter, But they used to be assembled by crane and the body was made by Eaton, the same maker for the Cranes. The body for the Lunati and the Crane was slightly different with ridges on the Lunati.

The serious high horsepower builders mostly are using the Crower HIPPO Cut-Away and the Isky Red-Zones. Those with customers of high budgets are using the Jesel and the LSM Keyways. The Jesel Dog-Bone is cool too.

I have one that I use that I really like better, that costs less than the Crower, or the Isky Red-Zones, but it does cost more than the Cam Company Roller Lifters, like Crane, Comp etc. These have stood much much abuse from strong springs big over .900 lift and more cams, in the .8542 size they have lived with 380# seat and 1050 open. IN the .904 size they have lived with 470# seat and over 1250# open with cams over 1.00 lift. The problem is this company will not sell to you unless you are an engine building shop. If you are a shop and can prove it to them, send me email and I will give you phone and fax and name.

Don't even think about the Isky that is not using bearings.
