I searched last year without any luck and ended up buying new NOS ones (not cheap)

I think most folk get them reconditioned.

SRM have been making them for a couple of a few years now (at least 4 years)


Most of my lifters get reground to suit different cams so it’s not always cost effective to buy new and have them ground to a specific size. If staying stock then it’s not a bad idea if your lifters are shot.


Now let’s all have a beer beerchug

68’ A65 Lightning “clubman”
71’ A65 823 Thunderbolt (undergoing restoration)
67’ D10 sportsman (undergoing restoration)
68’ D14 trials (undergoing transformation)

SRM has zero stock of A65 lifters and has been out for years.

Does Harris make these? Does anyone? I'm looking to buy at trade quantities.

Wouldn't it be worth talking to SRM for instance? I would expect they'd still have the necessary tooling, so may be willing to quote for "trade quantities".

It would, as I say I bought my set from them. If not and If the stems are not worn then get them reground.
