"Tolerance" or "clearance"?
Both. Morel tighten up the clearance in 2005 after some testing proved that it would allow higher rpm function. Morel's tolerance and Jesels are best of any lifter mfg.

I thought Crane made their own hydraulic roller lifters too. Has that changed?

Morel or Howards(Morel)...I wouldn't waste my time with anything else. They work, don't cost any more, and many many successful builds out there without incident
70 Mustang, 489 FE, TKO-600, Massflo SEFI, 4.11s
71 F100 SB 4x4, 461 FE, 4 speed, port injected EFI, 3.50s

Don’t sell Crower short. I have several of them in service with zero issues.
