I understand the concept of reality, but find it too confining as a way of life

With the history regarding the MoCo lifters, Stock or SE ones.

I'll keep replacing my Rig with the proven aftermarket lifters.

But these new lifters have "SE" laser etched on them....that alone should eliminate any doubt as to their reliability.... ;D :huepfenjump3: :nervous: :huepfenlol2: :bananarock: :2vrolijk_21:

They aren't new, they were standard equipment on 2013 and later TC110 engines as well as being listed in the SE catalog.  The bearings for the rollers were beefed up in response to all the roller failures in the 110's, the rest of the lifter appears to be the same old "C" level internals as best I can tell.  If you're looking for better and more reliable lifters, you might want to check out the aftermarket.  There are many threads around here concerning the various choices.  Btw, these lifters were just another example of Harley band-aids that don't actually fix the problem but might improve the failure rate somewhat.  There have been plenty of reports of failures on 2013 and later TC110's with these lifters.

18572-07 (now obsolete and superceded by these) are the SE version with beefed up roller needles of the old "B" lifters and are really good but getting difficult to find.

I'd still take these 18572-13s over the standard "C" lifters as it's the rollers and not plungers/internals that typically fail.

Until HD starts rebranding S&S premium lifters as their own.  I am not interested.

The 18572-07 is very similar to the current S&S premium (without travel limiters), although the S&S might not have the larger needle bearings of the SE.   From what I understand, S&S, like Fueling and others, is not making these lifters (Delphi is).
