Help! Are these MB hydro followers?

http://www.qualityvwparts.com/ltlftr.html

i'm talking about the lightweight ones, obviously.

bunch of us vw guys are wondering as our aftermarket suppliers won't tell... there's a rumor that they're mercedes, perhaps from the 2.3-16v's? any ideas?

thanks guys!

To my knowledge the early 16 valve engines are Solid Lifters. The later twin cam six's and the twin cam V-8's(1990-1996[6] or1999[8])may provide some answers to your search.

Good Luck

As well the 111, 604/5/6, 611/2/3, 646/8 engines may work.

Who manufacturers the lifters and what is the part number or the micd? A number should identify what engines the lifters possibly fit.

no one wants to share the number, and on the lightened ones they're either rubbing them off- or they come unmarked. as you can see from the pictures the stock vw ones are made by INA
