NOTICE

Many sought after parts are backordered these days. Supply-chain disruptions have hampered our company's ability to restock items reliably. We are doing what we can to recover from the changes to our industry and the effects they have had on our business, but currently a lot of shipments are delayed and our response time to emails are slow (we are severely short-staffed).


Please do NOT email to inquire for stock status. Instead, to get stock status, place an order request, and the items will ship if they are in-stock, OR we will post an itemized stock status for delayed items typically within 2-3 business days.

Placing an order request adds you to the reservation waitlist for out of stock items. We work diligently to source and fulfill backordered items as best we can -- backorders with unreliable restock ETAs are VERY frustrating for us as well. You can trust that even if we can't reply to your email, we ARE working on it and will contact you when we have any updated news to share. And of course, you can also email to cancel un-shipped/un-paid items at any time as long as they are not special order or made/machined-to-order.


Please only continue if you are prepared to be PATIENT. Your requested items might be significantly delayed by supplier-level backorder timeframes, and we usually aren't given reliable ETA information.

Thank you for your continued support and understanding.

Hardened Lash Caps for 8mm and 9mm Valves, Set of 8
Hardened Lash Caps for 8mm and 9mm Valves, Set of 8


 
These are small steel "hats" that fit on the end of the valve, and these wear out instead of your valve. A good idea if you have a bigger cam than stock, ratio rockers, OR stainless valves! These caps add around .060" to the valve height. This is a set of 8 to do one engine.

It's important to note that you use lash caps OR swivel feet/Elephant's Feet/911 Adjusters, you never use both! Lash caps are used with Scuffer Tip Rockers (rockers that have the adjusting screw on the pushrod end), or when using non-swivel type valve adjusting screws. Consider Lash Caps as replaceable items as they wear out, they are cheap.

Some people say that lash caps "must fit tight on the valve", but we disagree. It should be a snug, but not tight, fit. A little float is not going to kill you! It's not uncommon for lash caps which are "snug" to be a BEAR to get back off again, as the valve end deforms and swells inside the lash cap. This then requires a special puller to remove the cap!

4 of 5 Snug fit, good quality, easy to install. December 26, 2012
Reviewer: Jose Marquez from Covina, CA United States  
As it says in the product description, they fit snug on my L5ACN heads. They were perfect to help make my valve geometery spot on. The only reason I didn't put 5 stars is because this was my first engine build and haven't had experience with other caps and because I hadn't measured the thickness of any of them to verify consistency.
