Default AMC roller lifters

Hello all. Wondering if someone can identify the manufacturer of these AMC solid roller lifters for me. Searching the WWW has not turned up anything for me. Definitely AMC, set fits the block. Thanks,

Victor in Kingman

The mockup in the block is fine. I have heard that they could also be used in a Mopar, probably with different tie bars. I don't think any manufacturer uses that type of tie bar anymore.

Last one that I knew of was Isky, don't know if they still do use them now or not.

Mopar has no prevision for push rod oiling

They look like Very old Comp lifters.
I have not had a roller cam AMC in many years but the two lifters I used were Comp and Crane .
Lots of choices now that .904 lifters are available with pushrod oiling and in many different oil band locations , but I would only use them if not bushing the lifters.
I used to bush the bores with the oil feed hole located to match the oil band of a small block Chevy lifter with a .842 body and a .750 wheel due to the small base circle on the cam i was using and also used Ford tie bars.
Now that Jesel and T&D have high ratio rockers I would bush the bores to decrease oil loss and go with a conventional base circle,. But still use the SBC bore lifter to maintain an optimum oil gally diameter

I have a couple of sets of older Comp AMC lifters here from my bracket car and they have non separable tie bars. Even though Comp didn't say you had to, I had to bush the lifter bores as the slot for the roller was into the oil gallery at full lift.

Thanks all.
It's probably a moot point on who made them. They are brand new. Just need to mock it up to make sure the body groove doesn't uncover the lifter oil galley passage for a pressure loss at lift.

Tom, I have one block that is sleeved and set up for chebby lifters and
ford tie bars like you did.

Looking to see what else I need to build two motors with the parts I have on hand. One will be a street/strip with ported iron heads and a 4 speed. The other is a Fred Brewer headed 427 AMC, sheet metal intake with Turbo 400.

Thanks again,

Victor in Kingman
