Hydraulic or Solid? I hope you put them back in their original locations as they have been mated with their own cam lobe during breakin. Yes, you will need to readjust. Why did you take them out & clean them?

yes i did keep them in the same spot ,,, they were ticking loud and i took them apart to clean them ,,,, i might have to buy a set but they are hard to find for a 235 ,, i will try to readjust them, i just wanted to make sure they were fully pumped up

thanks

New lifters can be added to an old cam. It's done all the time if a lifter goes flat and stops pumping up.. You can't run old lifters on a new cam.. After the lifters are replaced, the cam should be gone thru a basic break in procedure to pattern the lifters to the cam..

New Cam wouldn't be a bad idea. Cost of a cam and lifter kit isn't much more than the lifters itself

not at all. Lead was used as a cushion additive for the valves because they were not hardened. With the light use your car will likely see, it will not be an issue..

Lifters are going to be expensive because the engine went out of production in 1962. There still nice smooth running engines.
