I putting together an engine, for a P.O.S. cruiser I picked up cheap, out of some left over 454 Mag parts....
.....I was hoping to use the old cam as this is a "budget' deal but am worried after reading all the flat tappet horror stories....
The cam came out of this engine and looks to be in good condition but I failed to mark the lifters when I pulled it apart... Can I just use new lifters and break everything in again ?
Are there any lifters on the market that are worth a sh!t ?
Is there anything else (besides going to roller) I can do to prevent it from failing?
