What is the difference in a solid vs. juicer 'stick? Example: 270S vs. 270H... same duration/lift, correct? Different lifters of course, but what about the grind and/or machining? Different materials used? Does this apply to rollers as well?

Just curious

Well, solids can use a quicker opening ramp, for one thing...

No, not at all. In fact I wound her up to 7K last night

I was just curious as to what makes one 'solid' or 'hydraulic'. I've held one in either hand, and I don't think I could tell simply by looking at the lobes.

I'm thinking about it...

I've got plenty of valvespring for it, as well as plenty of piston/valve clearance
