Cam followers play a pivotal role in how your valve train operates and functions! Over the years as you "rack up" mileage on your vintage British motorcycle, cam followers will begin to wear

During this time your followers will begin to loose the proper radius..

Our new "in-house" service will allow you to have your old lifters reconditioned to factory spec

We are offering service on 5/16" and 3/8" diameter lifters including 3/4", 1 1/8" & 3" radius

Price is $30 per lifter

Those follower faces don't need to be re-hardened or nitrided or something?

the grindable face looks pretty thick in this pic . ( assuming that line below the radius tip is a braze line )

Well, yes the lifter can only be ground if there is enough stellite

I check that prior to grinding

If the pad is too thin, the lifter is trash
