Jim, I have a Isky 270 cam with Elgin lifters and roller rockers. My
lifters stay quiet at 1/8 turn but the roller rockers sound like a sewing
If you have tried all of that you have either bad lifters or it is possible
the Cam was cut wrong providing a ramp the lifters have to run over making
the noise. Have you looked for a pattern on the lifter faces?.
