So, Have you brought this up with your builder yet? He owes you big time.
The broken link would not have reached that side if they were install properly.
Looks like a builder screw up to me. As they sit in that pic, they are clearly installed wrong.
Im inclined to believe the folks on here and their explanation. If it turns out to be the engine builders fault, you should put his name out there if he doesn't make it right. Then you should apolajise to Howards.
Too many people are quick to bash a company; but never give the proper kudos or respect that may be deserved as well. Just 'letting the issue drop' isn't fair as the complaint is already out there, unfounded as it may be.
The OP said this is not a new complaint regarding Howard's Cams, at least that's what he heard from someone else.
However, I 'think' I know the story here well enough that I can say that if this hadn't been documented with the pictures, then this would be another 'complaint' .... makes me wonder about these other 'issues' with Howards... might not be fair at all to judge the company for builder f-ups.
I'm still not sure I want to write off them for my cam yet. I'd like to hear this out more?
I think there's a whole bunch of us with Howard's products and no problems than the other way around.
I think AmericanHandy is pretty sure by now what happened. Maybe he'll update us soon and set the record straight.
We've all made mistakes and some have been big ones. The important thing is to learn from them and move on as wiser men.
If what I am seeing is correct those lifters are not intended for cams over 230 @.050 Those lifters have .700 wheel and the rollers are enclosed by the body of the lifter. Those lifter are pretty much a stock replacement application.
The lifter you want have a .750 wheel and the roller is not enclosed
