Sportsman Lifters from COMP Cams® are designed to be a premium and lighter weight upgrade over Endure-X™ Lifters and a value alternative to the Race XD™ option. To combat the common problem of wheel bearing oil starvation, two pressurized EDM oil feeds are directed to the axle, along with an edge orifice feed to the wheel. This triple oiling design delivers a more reliable oil feed than other options on the market. Sportsman Lifters also feature a shallower oil band than competitors’ lifters, resulting in increased strength and body rigidity, while internal machining helps to reduce weight.
The body design utilizes a skirted wheel that strengthens the lifter ears and also provides more contact area with the lifter bore for further lifter stability. In addition, staked axles eliminate clips and provide robust axle retention. This permanent axle retention feature increases the stiffness of the lifter ears and helps prevent the ears from spreading. Sportsman Lifters are built from 8620 premium steel for increased strength and wear resistance and feature a captured link bar design. Additionally, they utilize a tapered and slotted link bar tower for reduced weight and stiffness. The lifters also feature a tall style body, which enables use in both standard and .300″ tall lifter bore blocks.
The .904” diameter lifter features centered pushrod seats, an .800” diameter roller wheel and a precision sorted needle bearing and axle package that adds tremendous durability and strength.
