I use only Johnson lifters FWIW, I get them from Dave and Bison. I have several sets of used Morels and comps laying around. I am no expert but I stay with what works. I usually run about 150 on the seat and 400+ open for pressures, .030 preload max. I've spent a lot of time talking to both Bison and Dave and they have taught me bunches about valvetrain stuff. Like I said I will stay with what has worked for me and my customers.

Seems like everybody has had some kind of failure with every type of lifter.
I'll stick with my morel lifter.

I do have a question though.
If the box says do not run oil heavier than 5w 40.
Why are people ruining different oil?

Seems like there's a lot of guys out there running 15 30 or 20 50
You've got some builders that like .0025-.003 for clearences that requires 20w-50. IMO if you bearing clearences are .0015-002 and rod side clearence is tight you will have oil pressure to the moon on 10w-30-40
