This looks similar to what the LS engines use factory.Yes they use the spider tray. They dont wear and dont become brittle
My guess is they’re superior. But for someone like you and myself, it boils down to how big the cam will be and if the $200+ price difference is worth the peace of mind. I’ve heard that in most cases dog bones work very well. My car came with a pretty stout 306 that I would beat the absolute piss out of and other than the lifters getting old and noisy the car ran great. I did go with link bars for my current engine though. Just my $.02Hey Woody, do you feel link bars are superior to a spider setup? How about on a engine that will see a lot of highway miles? Just curious.
I couldn’t tell you what the cam specs were in that 306 other than the fact it was a custom cam made by Erson. The cam in my car now is .600 intake and exhaust. Not sure dog bones will allow the lifters to travel that far.My cam has .594 intake valve lift. I’m wondering if I’m approaching the point where I should rethink using my nearly new Sealed Power HT2205.
Put the lifter at max lift, then grab the lifter and pull it up until it hits the dogbone. If there is plenty of room, then your fine.My cam has .594 intake valve lift. I’m wondering if I’m approaching the point where I should rethink using my nearly new Sealed Power HT2205.
