What I mean is are there different size tiebars?  I'm in need of a set with a narrower tiebar or one that is higher up.  I have a set of Crane lifters but they won't work. 

thanks,

John

Are you trying to use the link bar lifters with a small base circle camshaft?

No - I am trying to correct a build issue.  Bronze lifter bushings were inserted into the lifter bores but were not ground down flush.  So the tie bars are hitting the 1/4" edge that is not flush.  Unfortunately it was sold to me in this condition and after 5600 miles the tiebar on #6 broke apart.  I didn't even notice a performance issue but a change of oil found tiebar parts in the pan.  I pulled the intake and found that the tiebar had broken and the lifters had turned 90 degree scratching up the cam pretty bad. 

So I am trying to find a lifter that has a thinner tierbar or a tiebar mounted higher so it will clear the lip and stop chewing up the insert and tiebar.  I unknowningly took a picture of the issue when the block was at the builder.  See the link below and I think you will see my problem.

+1. looks like youll only have to take a small amount off one side of each bushing, shouldn't be a big deal to give them a touch up with a die grinder and use the lifters you have... Give them a good check over though.
