    I just went back in with some standard HD "B" lifters. Not sure what the technical advantage would be in the SE lifters. Here is some interesting stuff on lifters:

    Plenty of guys running the standard "B" lifter in big inch perfromance builds; good lifters. PN 18538-99B; $19.16 each from Zanottis; good hardware at a good price.

    Assume you are referring to the "B' lifter? Yes, the cam contact is a roller.
