    LS Lifter Question

    I admit I am a newbie when it comes to LS motors. Set me straight on this and I can continue on with my buildup. I pulled the lifters this afternoon while installing my new cam. I noticed the lifters have a notch cut in them. Is this notch supposed to be up toward the inside of the motor or down toward the outside of the motor.

    Thanks for any help you guys can give.

    Just an FYI, I believe the notch has a hole in it and I assume it is the bleed for the lifter. Someone over at LS1tech said it does not matter which direction the notch goes. Anyone else care to comment or second that suggestion?

    I was told it didn't matter which direction also so that's how I installed mine. No problems so far.
