I used Fueling pump & lifters in my last 95" motor & they worked very well.

Didn't want to bash Feuling in my earlier post, but I had a set in the SEEG and one of the lifter axles failed. Had to replace cams, lifters, pushrods. AFterward it occurred to me that I was a dumb ass for using a $20 part in such an important place. I love the pump and generally think Feuling makes a good product, but I would never use their lifters again. I understand that the same manufacturer makes Harley and Fueling lifters, but I believe the SE lifters are much stronger.

SO all you guys who have these lifters in you bikes.....watch out!!!!1

PCC,

I do not know when you bought the Feuling Lifters you had problems with, however a few years ago (old style lifters) had problems. Feuling quit making them and introduced the newer styel.

Some one got a hold of the old series and people like Smok and Flames were selling them on Ebay, and some had nothing but problems with the.

I know this as I was one of the many who did purchase from Smoke and Flames, I found out about the problem on the HTT (Harley Tech Talk) website as others were having the same problems as you mentioned. Luckily I had not installed them yet.

I got a hold of Feuling, they confirmed that Smoke and Flames were not an authorized distributor and somehow got a bunch of the discontinued lifters and were selling on Ebay. They requested I send the faulty lifters to them (Feuling), which I did and they sent me N/C a new set, I never did have any problems with the Feuling Lifters and feuling Oil Pump in my 95" build c/w SE Heads and SE 251 Cams.

Talk about customer service.

I hope they get the problems of the death of the founder out of the way and get back to building and selling parts,

Feuling will tell U to use the feuling push rods and oil pump in conjunction to the lifters because of the increased oil flow.  Apparently they feel that Harley puts out a rather shakey head design for stock oiling.
