Maybe a silly question :

Most of the engine builders intall the lifter bar faced to the centrum from the block.

I installed the bar on the backside - facing to the cylinder heads.

Is this wrong ?

You mount a standart hydraulic lifter also without any direction , because the oil is arround the lifter in any case.

Howards tech line said , I should turn the lifters , because everybody do so, but they can not explain why .


I want to install the lifterbar backside, because there is more oil splashing arround and the valvelash is easier to see.

What do you think ?
