Field Servicing a Magnum Hydraulic Lifter
The Magnum Hydraulic Lifter is the heart of the Magnum-Pushrod. Maintaining the lifter is easy and cost effective. In the Field, the Hydraulic Lifter is easily disassembled and cleaned with solvents.
Don’t Do This When Cleaning Magnum Lifters
Each Magnum Lifter is a fitted pair of Barrel and Insert.
Once Separated and Mixed with other Lifters
it is impossible to rematch without Timing each Lifter.
Some Magnum Lifters have a keeper ring.
Arrange the lifters to keep each one separate from the other.
Some Magnum Lifters do not have a keeper ring.
Keeping the lifter parts together allows for proper pairing and reassembly once cleaned.
A brush works well to get any residual oil out of the lifter.
We use a cleaning tank with solvent to degrease the parts.
Clean each part inside and out.
Reassemble after cleaning with proper springs and, if used, keeper rings.
