Powerhouse Products GM LS Lifter Retaining Tool Aids With Camshaft Swaps

Memphis, TN – Camshafts in LS engines are easier to swap with this tool. It provides extra security by preventing the lifters from falling through the bores and into the engine.

When performing a camshaft swap on an LS engine, the rocker arms are removed and the lifters are held up off the camshaft with plastic lifter trays inside the engine. Over time, these lifter trays will wear and create a risk of dropping a lifter down in the engine, which then requires extensive disassembly to extract.

The Powerhouse® GM LS Lifter Retaining Tool slides through holes in the front of the engine and holds the lifters securely in their bores. The extra-long design with integrated handle provide plenty of leverage, while the rounded pushrod-style tip eases installation. Smooth construction of high-quality materials and the proper outer diameter prevents internal engine damage and won’t leave debris behind.
