NOTICE

Please read this notice and only continue if you are willing to abide by our updated backorder acquisition and fulfillment terms of service.


Supply-chain disruptions have hampered our ability to acquire/restock items reliably. Additionally, a lack of backorder ETA information is a frustrating "new normal" for our hobby. As a result, we have had to change our BACKORDER ACQUISITION TERMS OF SERVICE. If you opt to have us "send backorders later", backordered items will ship automatically if we are able to get them within 30 days. Longer than 30 day backorders WILL BE AUTOMATICALLY CANCELLED. Made-to-order, Special-Order, and Direct-shipped items may take longer than 30 days, and will NOT be auto-canceled.


On the next page, you will be prompted to select a BACKORDER HANDLING INSTRUCTION for your Order Request. In every case, you are NOT CHARGED for out-of-stock items (we ONLY charge for items that are available to be shipped in a timely or reasonably reliable timeframe). If you opt to "send backorders later" you are automatically added to the waitlist for those items, and we post stock status / backorder info to your Order Status/Progress/History Detail View in your online Customer Account. You can email to cancel un-shipped/un-paid items at any time as long as they are not direct-shipped, special order or made/machined-to-order.

Currently many shipments are delayed and our response time to emails are slow (we are severely short-staffed). Please trust that even if we can't reply to your email promptly, we are continuing to work to fulfill your Order Request as best we can, and we will contact you once we have any new information that is not already posted in your online Order Progress/History area in your customer account.


Please only continue if you are prepared to be PATIENT. Some of the items in your cart might be out-of-stock, and if that is the case, within a day or two we will post itemized stock status information to your account and/or email you to let you know. We appreciate 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.
