Powerglide II™ Advantage. For over a year, the Jims R&D
team has been developing a tappet built for today’s engine
dynamics. Big power, big torque, increased spring weights,
greater piston speed, etc... means increased demand on the
tappet & tappet roller. Jims is proud to introduce the
PowerGlide II. This tappet has undergone extensive develop-
ment to increase its load, lubrication, hydraulic and life capaci-
ties. Jims has been manufacturing tappets for over 30 years,
and is the only aftermarket manufacturer that manufactures tap-
pets in house. The Powerglide II, has all the advantages of it’s
predecessor-billet body, superior hydraulic unit, roller perpen-
dicularity held to .0002", hand-honed hydraulic unit cavity, and
now includes the following advantages:
• The total Dynamic load capacities have been increased over
30% straight across the board.
• The lubrication capacities for the hydraulic unit and valve train
(top end) have increased 10%.
• The lubrication capacities for the roller cams, and cam bear-
ings have increased 100%. (Increased cooling)

(OEM# 9028). This insert is manufactured from aluminum that
is several times stronger than the aluminum case material the
standard bearing rides in. The tool includes:
• A new steel bearing insert held under .002" TIR (total indica-
tor reading).
•A press plate that will hold the bearing insert in line with the
case bearing bore at the time it is being pressed into case.
• All the necessary drill bits to drill oil feed and return holes,
hardware and detailed instructions.
This job can be performed with normal hand tools , a hand
drill and a 2 ton press.
Use on Twin Cam engines 2003 to the present. Must also use
existing Jims Tool (16-0668) for race installation. Order bear-
ing inserts and Timken Bearings separately.
