        Isky and Crower do not make their own lifters
        They get them from the other Johnson
        Back in the Day Isky had a Hyd cam for Vw's
        Discontinued when the lifter vendor wanted a 50,000 part minimum order
        now for the math challanged
        you can have a fast action .842 cam or spread the same lobe over .904 and have less load
        or you can add a little faster action to the .904
        It's mostly during the middle of the lobe not the start or stop
        and start and stop is where most rapid action designs go wrong
        Like someone quoted Engle saying that Hughes wanted too fast an action
        so what to do
        make it easy off the seat, especially closing but make it faster on the flanks
        you can have what overall is fast action without open and close fast action
        Jones Motor Home cam is an example

          I would say that nowadays, I doubt there is any brand of lifter that isn’t going to have some failures.

          This has probably always been the case, but 30-40 years ago there wasn’t any internet to access and get feedback from all over the world.
          If your friends and the people you knew at the track weren’t having problems with something in particular........you just didn’t hear about it.

            Two brands named Johnson
            Isky and Crower use one as do some other quality camgrinders
            check out both websites
