Lifters for 1956 Buick

Recommended Posts

Hi , are Rover Buick lifters the same as those used in a 1956 Buick ? My lifter, lifters collapsed on the way home last night and I need to replace. Can anyone recommend a supplier for one or two lifters.

 

Thanks.

 

Kind regards

 

Rod

I don't believe the lifters are the same.    Try TA Performance also, but they only sell by the set which is what you would replace anyway, not just one or two.

1953 , 54, 55 are not the same as 1956 on.

Odd that the lifters would just collapse en route.  Replacements will likely suffer the same result unless the cause is found and corrected.  Has the oil pan ever been  removed and flushed clean?  And if not,  chances are the lifters can be disassembled, cleaned, reassembled,  and put back into their original bores.  The other thing that seems possible is the oil pump lost significant amount of pressure.

ht896 sealed power

2131646 perfect circle

might find for a little as $5 each, which makes sense to replace all.

All lifters collapsing at once says low oil pressure. No way would they all fail at once.

As Jihn D says - check the pan for gunk in the oil pickup

… we recommend just replacing the internal spring, seat and ball and cleaning throughly all the while keeping the original lifter body if it's heal face is not pitted or overly worn paying particular attention to matching it back to the particular given cam lobe it rode on … that way the lifter body will continue to match the cam lobe it rode upon without causing break-in issues which can and do happen when a new complete lifter body is set into place upon a given exiting cam lobe ...
