Hydraulic lifters rely on engine oil & pressure to ensure the correct valve clearance. Sticking hydraulic lifters can be audible through the valve train and cause premature engine wear. Regular servicing and using the correct oil is critical of smooth hydraulic action.

Hydraulic SKR Engine bucket type tappets ensure that the valve train remains rigid. They have a low mass and low mass moment of inertia, and allow high speeds. Formed steel housing with the minimum wall thickness and welded guide funnels afford high endurance strength and rigidity with a low moving mass.
