Re: Trouble getting new lifters pumped up
I did take all the rockers off of the shafts, but did it for the intake side first and then the exhaust side after I reinstalled the intake side, I made sure to keep all rockers in order and also made sure to put shafts in correctly with the flat side towards the cam gears facing up like the fsm shows.
I made sure to be careful and held the rockers upside down when installing the lifters so the discs wouldn't flip but have no way of knowing until I pull em all back apart.
and the oil and internals of this engine are very clean, I run mobil one synthetic and changed it 3 times in 1800 miles, which is probably a waste.
and Ron I didn't take any close up pics of the bottoms of the new lifter, there from Cindy at fwdperformance. not a rebuild, motor I believe is original as far as I know and was and is still running great, just had a slight lifter tick with the stock lifters so I thought I'd upgrade to the new ones. and I'll try taking the covers off when its running and check out the oil situation.
one thing I didn't mention was while pressing some of the lifters in I got a slight shaving of the white plastic ring that goes up into the rocker, like I pressed some of them in a slight angle causing a bit of the plastic to shave off a bit.
