My Google maps showed a resident on the water and a pretty sizable shop a few miles away. I've had a few folks ask about them but I have no experience with them to say anything about them.

I ordered a single set of his bushing lifters at a customers request. Talked to Brad at length and I felt he was straight up and honest. The lifters arrived on time and was on size with the offsets needed. He don't do all the component part manufacturing but does assemble them himself. Special orders aren't a problem. Can order oversized bodies, oiling options, offsets ECT.
If I recall correctly it takes 10 sets to get the "good-guy" discount.

I posted about USA made Bam lifters on August 11 2013.... Brad Miller was director of Manufacturing Engineering @Crane Cams from 1996 to 2009 .
Chris Straub said "they would be short lived". Looks like they are still in operation 5 years later.

I've got a set of BAM bushed solid roller lifters in my Pontiac engine. I bought them second hand from a gentleman that ran them in his NA Poncho motor for Drag Week 2016 I think it was... then decided to switch from solid roller to hydraulic roller + turbo. When I got them they looked virtually brand new and all measured within +- 0.0005". Have had zero issues with my set yet and don't envisage any issues either.

I wonder why that was said? I have seen just as many sprint car engines come in with Bam lifters as i have crowers.

There's been some snide comments on here from folks that I would bet have never used a BAM lifter, probably never seen a set. I have two sets in use. One in a 582 bbc 20 degree heads that has 300 on the seat and 850 open. Going on 4 years and 250 plus runs and the valve lash doesn't vary. One set in a 632 with 360 seat and 1100 open going on 150 runs. Again the lash is rock solid when checked. I do not offer an opinion if I do not have personal experience with a product. There is no reason to trash BAM lifters to follow the herd or try to promote your favorite brand. Get a set, you will have to buy them from a dealer, they are not sold to the general public.
