Lem,
When soaking the solid lifters, which way do you point them in the soaking pan?

Solid roller lifter. John didn't say if they were roller or flat tappet. What are they John?

Actually I prefer a coffee container....I've learned that it helps to remove the coffee first Wink

I always soak rollers at least over night and then manually roll them to make sure that oil gets in to the needles. I use normal 20-50 racing oil, but one lifter mfr used to recommend 5w synthetic.

Make sure you use a plastic Folger's container not a tin can which can effect the flavor.

I wonder if it would be quicker to put them in a sonic cleaner full of oil? (ref: I have a table top 4L heated sonic cleaner)

Man...you guys are good with the Java jokes.
I guess that is why some lifters are a little "jumpy"

No you would still have to remove the coffee.

I always soak used ones that haven't been used for a while in some sort of solvent over night,then blow them out real well. Soak them again in the oil that you plan on running. Maybe a little overkill,but that's just the way I do it.

if you use used lifters you have to keep them in order they came out of the engine and put them back on the same lobes they came off of or you will wipe the camshaft......

Rick I assumed the guy wasn't using Roller lifters, or from the title I figured he meant solid flat tappets, if he meant solid Roller any lobe will do but if he meant solid flat tappet or Hyd flat tappet they have to use same lobes as they came off of....
