    FABO Racers, I need a set of mechanical oil through (AMC style) lifters for the EQ Magnum heads I'm running on my 340. Does anyone have recomendations?

    Comp Cams, Crower, Howard’s, Johnson, Lunati all have .904” AMC pushrod oiling style. Very easy to Choose your poison. Just make sure any listing stipulates for AMC. Me? I’m using Howard’s EDM style Lifters - Mechanical flat tappet Lifter Style - 0.904 in. Lifter Outside Diameter (in) - Free Shipping on Orders Over $99 at Summit Racing

      General question about EDM lifters, does the hole get plugged up after awhile?

          I also was concerned with the EDM hole becoming clogged. I have been running them for 8 years and have had them out 3 times over the years. They were all clear. This is with a bunch of miles and runs on them. I wouldn’t worry. Now I don’t oil through the push rods so that might help them keep clear. Oil dead heads there?
