Nitro/Alcohol Hemi Lifters


It’s no secret that a Nitro fueled engine blasting down the drag strip is one of the most violent engines ever produced. Estimated at over 11,000 horsepower, the cylinder pressure generated can exceed 10,000 psi causing tremendous loads to be exerted on the exhaust lifter. A lifter failure often results in a big fire ball heading down the track followed by a lengthy oil down. Prior to Jesel’s release of their Nitro-Alcohol lifter, teams were gambling to get 10 runs on a set of lifters before throwing them away. Since switching to Jesel, teams have increased the life to over 35 runs before rebuilding them, not replacing them.


Jesel’s direct replacement, ultra strong, Nitro-Alcohol Hemi Lifter is resetting the standard for lifters in blown nitro and alcohol engines. The REM polished, one-piece tool steel bodies are connected with a heat treated stainless steel tie bar and can be fully rebuilt. Roller features include precision sorted tool steel needles distributing the load to a .378” diameter dual pinned axle and are available in .905”, 1.000”, 1.062” Open Pocket or 1.062” and 1.125” Full Body Diameters. Pushrod cup height is available in either a Jesel preferred low pivot or a .200” raised cup location and lifter centers are available in 1.800” to 2.000” centers. Available for Brad Anderson and Alan Johnson blocks, these lifters do not have provisions for pushrod oiling as the blocks do not provide for it.
