Can you use LS7 lifters in LS1?

Registered. If your math is correct, 7.35 without preload and you add . 050 preload, you are back at the 7.4″ that you have already. LS1, LS2, LS3, LS4, LS6, LS7 and lots of others all use the same lifter.

Are all LS lifters the same?

The LS series of engines include both aluminum block (LS1, LS6, LS2, LS7, LS3, LS9) and cast iron versions (LQ4 and LQ9, primarily used in trucks and some SUVs). All LS-series engines feature roller-tip lifters, and all feature a 0.842-inch lifter body diameter.

How much travel do LS7 lifters have?

GM LS7 Lifter plunger total travel = . 200. Johnson (standard travel) 2110 or 2120 Lifter total travel = . 215.

Are LS7 lifters hydraulic?

GM Performance LS7 Hydraulic Roller Lifters are designed as an OEM replacement for 3800, LS2, and LS7 engines. With a slight increase in internal preload to prevent the lifter from bleeding off, they pair nicely with 60 through 130 lb valvesprings.

What are LS7 lifters in?

Contains 16 new GM Lifters and is the same lifter used in the LS7 427 performance engine. This lifter kit was designed by GM to be incorporated into performance engine builds and utilizes improved valving for higher RPM capability….CHEVROLET PERFORMANCE LS7 LIFTER SET – 12499225.

BTR SKU 12499225
Lifter Diameter .842″

What is lifter Pumpup?

This tool easily pumps up hydraulic lifters, using thin 5 or 10 weight motor oil or automatic transmission fluid to pump oil into the lifter side feed hole to push all of the air out of the lifter internals.

Is the LS7 a pushrod engine?

The LS7, which debuted in the Corvette C6 Z06, is now available as a 570-hp crate motor. It’s tough making big power from a naturally aspirated pushrod engine. That’s not to say that it can’t be done, of course; to this day, NASCAR engines all follow a cam-in-block, V8 configuration, and they generate plenty of thrust.

Who makes GM LS7 lifters?

GM Delphi LS7 Hydraulic Roller Lifters – Set of 16. These GM stock replacement lifters are manufactured by Delphi.

Is the LS7 a big block?

in. To clarify, the LS7 engine code can also refer to a 454 cubic-inch Big Block V8 with a 460 horsepower, which was offered in iconic GM muscle cars throughout the 1970s, including the Chevrolet Caprice, Chevelle, Corvette, El Camino, Monte Carlo, and GMC Sprint.

Can I use an LS7 lifter with an ls1/2 lifter?

Yes, you could. If they were within the tolerance, you should probably be worried because I expect pretty tight tolerances (FWIW, I usually shoot for .050″-.075″ preload). I would have to have an already really low preload with a LS1/2 lifter for it to fall withing my preload window with a LS7 lifter.

What is the correct PR length for LS7 lifter?

OP, did you check your PR length upon installation. The lifter cup height is .050″ higher in the LS7, requiring a .050″ shorter PR than would normally be used with LS1/2 lifters, assuming the same valvetrain geometry and the same preload is desired.

Are all Delco LS7 lifters the same?

A lot of vendors like to claim they have “LS7” lifters but are not “Delco LS7” lifters (usually sold in a plastic bag). First you need to specify which LS7 lifter you are talking about. Also, if they do not come in a genuine Delco box or boxes they are probably different lifters all together.

Does the weight of lifters affect the valve train?

The weight of the lifters is last in line as far as affecting the valve train. Click to expand… I was leaning more toward any differences in oiling efficiency (design of plunger, cup, etc ).
