One of my lifters is bad and I need a new one. Is there any way to buy just one? Also, are SC lifters the same as the NA 3.8 lifters?? TIA

yes, all 5.0 lifters are the same also. Ford or any parts store should have some, about 10-15$

It was knocking really bad, sounded like a bearing had gone out, but it was very high in the engine. I took the drivers side valve cover off and the rocker arm was loose because the spring in the lifter had collapsed, not letting the pushrod hold the rocker arm up.
