    I think he is on to something. This video should be shown to Chrysler engine engineers. You would think Chrysler would have come up with a fix by now. ????

    This I know for sure as a Chrysler tech. I personally seen few dropped seats on older Hemi. On the old Hemi very few-if any I can remember had failed lifters. This is mainly on 09 and up Hemi. Strange. The first cars we saw with failed lifter were cop cars. Slowly other passenger cars and trucks showed up. Why the difference is there between new -09 and up as 03-08. We are also finding 3.6 with failed needle bearings in roller rockers.

    The cure is Johnson lifters with the axle oiling. Plus all Johnson lifters oil from the lifter oil galley, not just through the pushrod.

    I went to their web site hoping to get a good explanation of what "axle oiling" is and how it works. But, they don't explain it.

    Without divulging their design, the Johnson lifter PN2356 (only) supplies at a certain point where the lifter band oiling (pump side - lower pressure) and the top-down oiling (pushrod side - high pressure) allows a slotted passage (from the oil band down to ~0.200" on the axle side) that leads to an orifice-style exit that creates a spray pattern aimed at the interface between the needle bearing end faces and the ID of the roller itself.

    Unhappy

    Soo many questions about this issue now. I gather this affects all camshafts/lifters for all late generation Hemis (2009 & up) ?

    Any remedies developed for this problem yet ?

    I have a 2010 6.1 with basic boltons plus an FRI/Scud cam, Manley Pushrods/PAC springs with relatively
    low mileage at 68,000 kms. So far no problems yet...Should I be worried ? Meh, too late, already am...

    Why needlessly worry?
