    What do you guys think of running solid lifters on the street? Good Bad? My wifes jeep has a bored 283 and the previous owner put in solid lifters.

    For me they're kind of a PITA adjusting them all the time, but if you enjoy it, then they're ok for the street.

    If you can change them yourself I would change them out. As stephan said there a pain. Most people I know that use them are for high performance radical motors, not dailey drivers.

    I gotta agree unless you've got a performance engine you dont mind tinkering with often I wouldnt run solid lifters.

    Thanks, actually the originals were Hydraulic lifters, I made a mistake and listened to the parts guys. All good picked up a set of hydraulic and put them in soon. And I WILL be getting my money back from the solids!!!!
