Is anyone reproducing multi-lifts? I am looking for a set for my speedster. If noone is reproducing them, does anyone have a set they would sell/loan so that I could make some copies?

A friend of mine runs them, and he seems to have great success. I think they could be made for less than a new cam, and certainly have similar if not better power gains.

Thanks.
Charles

Charles- try contacting Steve Coniff at Rocky Mountain Machine in Colorado Springs. Steve sells the kevlar band lining and I think he is listed in the supplier section.

Do you have a spare set?

Howdy Charles: I plan on installing both sets. As suggested give Steve Coniff a call.

Ken: This should help, it's taken from the literature that came with multi-lifts I posted above.

I put a set of those in a 1926 roadster pu and they really do work well. The downside is that the jam post broke on 2 of them within 500 miles. I need to remove them and get them fixed but too cold. To install you have to shorten the valves 3/8 of an inch and re-drill for the keeper. I don't remember if I had to shorten the valve springs or not. The motor idles a little funny with them but it really wakes up a T.

Tim Moore

PS. mine and those in the photo (probably) were made by Jerry or Gary Hart about 15 years ago and he died just as he started production so not too many sets were sold.

Are those used with the standard valve in block, or with overhead valves? Looking at them, I don't understand what they do or where they are located.
