Lifters

    It is important when rebuilding your air cooled classic VW engine to install new camshaft lifters. Anytime you are replacing a camshaft always install new lifters so they break in together. Here in our shop in Tucson we get in engines all the time that have the camshafts and lifters totally wiped out because somebody had installed a new cam with old lifters or an old cam and didn't put the original lifters back on the same lobes.

    Below you will find our stock replacement classic Volkswagen cam followers as well as lifters for the later air cooled Volkswagen buses.
    One of the most valuable little tricks when building a Volkswagen air cooled engine is keeping the lifters in place when you assemble the engine haves together, this can be done one of two ways, you can add a heavier grease to the outside of the lifter and slide them in place before you stack the case haves together or you can use our custom little lifter retaining clips that hold list lifters securely in place while assembling the case haves . please browse all of our classic air cooled engine parts categories for all your VW parts needs
