hey guys just had a question on these hydro lifters for my 91 sc, it sounds like their making a little noise after doing the head gaskets. I had them soaking in oil before reinstalling, just wanted to know if theirs a certain way to perpare them. if any one can help thanks

I have had a tiny leak in the exhaust before that sounded like
a ticking lifter. Maybe you can see if any header bolts need
to be snuged up.

Well this is the second time apart and the first time it didnt make the noise.
bUT I will keep checking see what else i can find

A hydraulic lifter that is not pumping up should sound literally terrible, and not like you think a normal lifter tick is. I'd make sure on the exhaust leak... maybe you didn't get the down tubes connected properly?
