skip are you sure you want lifters and not rockers? and if so when a roller lifter comes apart it usually takes the hole motor with it, just my opinion here buy new lifters and have peace of mind. i know they are pricey but so is a motor

my point is this, if you look at cyl #4&8 lifters they are broken,granted this guy makes more hp than any of us but these lifters were brand new


just my opinion, do what you want

Ralph,
Thanks for your input, I respect your opinions and will go ahead and buy new lifters, Lord knows I don't want to go through another engine build, one's enough! I will email you some specs of the valvetrain & heads I got, hopefully this engine will be fast AND reliable, cheap isn't an option anymore  ;D

Thanks again Ralph
