Bummer! I didn't want to think the reason the lifter wasn't holding pressure was due to it being worn all the way through the lifter, into the oil chamber. But that's what has happened.

No repairing that lifter, and the cam is toast, too. I can only give you my best advice: Do not try to salvage the lifters (ANY of them), and do not try to reuse the cam. The result will be 100% failure. No way will another lifter EVER run on that lobe that the bad lifter was on- no way, no how.

This is a tough break, but it happens. After you have cleaned the engine out and inspected the bearings and such, use the following info to help avoid any more problems:

Valve train points to check
Cam break in
Adjusting hydraulic lifters

We are not going any further. Its time for a teardown as you guys prescribed. I would like to hear the opinions about the new parts going back in. We wanted to get everything from Chevrolet. Or is Summit Jegs Speedway just as good. I read stories about aftermarket hard parts being kinda soft.

Thanks, a lot of guys have added their knowledge to those pages through the years.

For the most part, hard parts from Summit and Jegs, etc. are fine. Even things like camshafts from Summit have shown to be good quality.

That said, there ARE some parts that are coming in from overseas (China, mostly) that you have to be careful of. Some are OK, others not so much.

If you want to, toss out what you are thinking about getting before ordering and get some opinions on them.

In the meantime, if you do a search here and on the internet in general, you can get reviews on the different manufacturers. One databank is Hotrodders company reviews.

When you get into the chinese speed parts, there are varying opinions. Some guys do not like them because they come from a communist nation, others have problems w/the quality. I'll leave the decision to you on how you spend your money.
