Question for Splitporter's! Please HELP
well i had a unfortunate event this weekend, my 4.3L cougar took a crap on me. I knew that i had to small of pushrods on it, but i threw a lifter! I was told by several other splitporters and SSM that using stock lifters and pushrods was not going to be a problem. well i got everything off and inspected the lifters and one lifter seems to be missing the top cap, now im hoping that it went into the pan
I was curious to find out what you other splitporters are running for lifters and pushrods, and if possible where you got them at. I bought a pushrod length checker to measure for the correct length, but if there is anything else that i can prevent id like to take care of it while the lower manifold is off..
So here's my Questions
1) splitporters, what are you using for lifters and pushrods, if aftermarket where did you purchase
2) While i have the lower manifold off is there any other preventive maint that i can do to avoid another lifter problem.
