New Tool-Steel Lifter for Chrysler-engine Late-model Circle Track Cars and Sportsman Drag Race Cars
This new lightweight Tool-Steel lifter from Trend Performance is designed with the professional racer in mind.
Superseding the hardened iron and chilled iron lifters, Trend’s new .904˝ diameter Tool-Steel lifter for Chrysler engines is both durable and light, weighing less than 69 grams. Durability testing was conducted during a full season of Nextel Cup racing. There were no failures. Trend also tested them extensively on cast iron cams and on steel cams.
The 5/32˝ radius of the pushrod seat matches perfectly the 5/16˝ Trend one-piece pushrod, and the radii on the annulus helps prevent scuffing of the lifter bores.
Available in coated (to increase wear properties) or uncoated finishes, these lifters feature a ground foot with an Rz specification (surface roughness) of 4 µ inch (micro inchfour-millionth of an inch) and an Ra spec of .08 µ inch. The Rz refers to a 10-point average of the 5 highest peaks compared with the 5 lowest valleysit defines the depth of a scratch. The Ra (roughness average) refers to the average distance between the peaks and valleys.
A direct replacement for the Schubeck ceramic-foot lifter and hardened to 64 Rockwell, these lifters provide the strength and toughness necessary to operate at both higher RPM and higher spring pressures.
Trend Tool-Steel lifters for Chrysler engines are available for immediate shipping; their part numbers are:
CH- 904-LM-S non-oiling lifter (solid body); and
CH- 904-LM oiling lifter.
Ford and GM counterparts will be available shortly.
