    There is some concern over the most recent "C" lifters from HD. You may want to look at some of the higher end providers like Jim's, VThunder, etc. See here:

    http://www.jimsusa.com/pdf/2013_catalog.pdf

    V Thunder: Hy-Rev™ Hydraulic Lifter 99'-Present, Twin Cam, TC88

    Both of these providers have EZ type pushrods too. But you may want to consider the Screamin' Eagle adjustable pushrods. All are good.

    TQ

    I've got a set of Andrews chrome moly pushrods and AMS lifters in the Fatboy. LOVE 'EM. Bike dyno'd at 120hp-125tq. Of coures there are other things I've done to it but that's the lifters nd rods I'm using.

    I am currently running Andrews EZ installs in my twinkie and ran Screamin Eagle EZ adjust in my last EVO. I would suggest chrome moly pushrods and stay away from th ealuminum ones for obvious reasons.

    Hmmm....I thought Andrews were Aluminum?? The set I have sitting on my workbench look like aluminum. They're an orangish yellow anodized set of quick install. Why avoid them? Flex? Failure?
