Re: 14 power wagon lifter failure

Finally getting the wagon back this week! Engine repaired, then onto new tires and brakes...it's always something. I've missed it, and need it for work

Re: 14 power wagon lifter failure

Yeah I hear you, I've just had bad experiences with other brands when it comes to repairs like this. Hoping I don't have to fight with them about it...stay tuned

Curious if you've there's any progress on this? Ram is going to be repairing my lifter/cam issue but dealership says there will be a month wait at least. Service writer says because of parts shortage

Re: 14 power wagon lifter failure

Just got off the phone with RAM and they are going to repair the truck under warranty! A case I had opened last fall before the warranty expired seems to have saved me.

Re: 14 power wagon lifter failure

No prob! I just learned this recently. Yeah the hellcat lifters are what I'm looking at doing to my truck. The stock cam is so cheap it's what I'd like to use, and I love the way the truck ran. New of course since the bad lifter wiped it out.

Re: 14 power wagon lifter failure

Not to disagree, but there are. The lobe ramps on the mds cylinders are unique shape vs standard

Re: 14 power wagon lifter failure

Yes they do. The 6.4 cam for direct replacement is only $60.! The closest non mds, vvt truck cam I came up with is the 2500 and and up 5.7 vvt non mds. I've been told this cam is not as aggressive, but haven't been able to actually look at specs for the two

Re: 14 power wagon lifter failure

Thanks. Any idea why some say mds cam shouldn't be used ? Sounds like something to do with the special ramps on the lobes

14 power wagon lifter failure

Hey guys. I just lost number 1 intake lifter at 104000 miles and it took the cam with it. If Ram refuses to fix and I repair it myself can anyone tell me if I can use the stock cam (replacement) with non MDS lifters? I've searched for hours and seem to get both yes and no answers
