We run Smith Ceramic lifters in all our small block
Stockers.......But have not been able to contact them for a
while!

Their number is long out of service........Couple hun North of me
but I hate to take a day off to look at a empty boarded up shop!

Yes with our particular cam profiles....Even after reworking the lifters for VERY Minimal travel in my humble opinion!

I hate a pan load of shiny tiny metal flakes!
