Unhappy Camshaft

Yes, it is a small base circle cam in 351 block that I bolted a 302 spyder assembly to. One of the legs of the spyder wasn't putting much pressure on the dog bone, guess that allowed it to move a bit and catch the top of one of the lifter and come out.
Time for some linked lifters!
That is the funniest thing, the lifter looks damn near as good as the rest. It deffinitly came out the victor in that fight. Still rolls perfectly smoothly!

I've built afew motors with crane tie-bar lifters, they work good.
Use those with a standard roller cam and you'll be good:nice:
The tie-bar on the cranes is NOT removable and that is one thing i liked.
