Mixed up lifters
I'm in the process of tearing into my 258 and I was very pleasant to see that the engine was just recently rebuilt sometime before I aquired the jeep. I still wanted to check everything to make sure that the previous rebuilder didn't take any short cuts. Well I took the head off, and pulled out the pushrods a couple of days ago. I kept everything organized and in line. Just today I went to rotate the block to take the oil pan off and I forgot all about the lifters. Needless to say, the lifters went all over the floor. I wouldn't of cared but these lifters look almost brand new. I looked them over and I didn't see any nicks in them from hitting the floor. Would you recomment reusing the lifters? I'm thinking that since they have very little wear, I'll just clean them up, and throw them in. But, they will not be in their original locations. What do you think?
