90 degree off sbc roller lifters?

I bought a set of hydraulic OE roller lifters for 5.7L chevy and the alignment flats are on the wrong sides of the lifters. Are there any guide plates out there for this style or what gives? Thanks for any input.

Sounds like somebody stuck you with 4 cylinder or some kind of V6 lifters. You won't find different lifter guides to be able to run them in a conventional SBC.

You didn't get newer LS engine lifters did you??

Did some homework - they are LS lifters. My bad - buyer beware.

I'm betting you bought them on-line right? Too many mistakes made that way that would have been caught by a good parts counter man (a dieing breed now-a-day's).

I don't know what you got, but I do not think they are LS or 2.2L, 3.1L or 3.4L V-6 lifters. They all AFAIK have the flats same as the '85-up SBC.

LS should work. Common upgrade is LS7 lifters into GenI engines.
