I'm wanting to install a full roller cam in my 401. Looking to use a Crane Cam with a street/strip grind. Was wondering what the best roller lifters will be best for this application? I did Google it and found retrofit roller lifters for the AMC 401. What are options and the size I'll need?

I've used Johnson roller lifters. Think others have used Crane.

I just ordered a custom ground cam and hyd roller lifters from Bullet cams for my 401 I'm building. They use Morel lifters. I also used Morel/Lunati HYD roller in my BB Mopar with satisfactory results.
