Of course, the latest and greatest! 12645725s are in my truck (since 2016) and that number has been superceded to the other.

Having a hard time finding that part, got a link?
The AFM lifters are hard to come by right now. Rock Auto sells them under the Ultra-Power brand, which may or may not be manufactured by Melling like the originals.

According to GMPartsDirect, 12645725 was replaced by 12680871 which was replaced by 12698946 which appears to be the current number.

Jegs says that they have 4 of them left in stock. https://www.jegs.com/i/Chevrolet-Performance/809/12698946/10002/-1

GM dealers and reputable companies listed here have them:


Not familiar with these companies:


All of the Amazon ones are Chicom garbage and the reviewers all lost their engines soon after installation.

Yea that’s exactly why I’m going for delco brands or ones that could be trustworthy

Off topic question but when you do this will you remove the (intake) valves and clean the back sides? Like to see a picture of those if so. Really wonder about the DI engine valves build up.

@tom3 These engines aren't direct injection, normally there isn't a reason to clean the intake valves. This is for 08-2014 Tahoes looks like you might be thinking of newer ones
