Unhappy cam questions

ok i built my bbc with a solid roller cam and lifters, i have come to hate the noise that it is constantley putting out. anyone ever done or heard of throwing a set of hydro roller liters on top of a solid roller cam? this would take away the clattering i hear.

Turn up the radio, and make the exhaust louder. Sure fix for knocks and rattles. Any of these Chebbie guys can vouch for that.

It will be noisy, but if the valves are set right, it shouldn't be obnoxious. Nothing loud pipes or a radio can't fix.

No, you can't run a hydraulic lifter on a camshaft designed for solids.

ardillon82937 just gettin started
roller lifters

I would think you would be ok if it is one of the newer syle billet cams and it's not too radical. You should get out your degree wheel and see if there is an effect on the valve timing, but I doubt it. the most problem will be getting the right push rods. And there are many tools out there to measure the right length you need. I have run solid rollers on a hyd roller cam and know that will work. So I don't see a problem going the other way, unless you have too much lift.

No, don't mix your lifters around. While it could phisically be done, and still run, it would turn out to be worse in the long run.

I have put solid flat tappets on a hydraulic grind cam, but wouldn't go the other way.

Think about it.....you do all that work just to find out it runs like $#!t afterwards......you are better off doing a cam swap right from the start, or just live with the noise.
