Elliot,

1. Apologies for mistyping your name

2. your comment was

"Clean Pull: 160
Deadlift: ? what's the difference with a clean pull?"

The difference is in the explosive nature of the second pull and the end position.

Deadlift - Slow off the floor, not much faster above the knee, feet remain flat and there is no shrug.

Clean pull - slow off the floor, maximal acceleration from just below the knee, up on the toes with a big shrug.

If you can get 160 to the top of a clean pull then the chances are you could deadlift significantly more.
