When installing new lifter's, I've ALWAYS soaked the lifter's covered with oil prior to install. Does anybody still do that? I haven't heard it mentioned yet. Old theory was to fill the lifter's so they would have oil in them while waiting for pressure from the pump. I believe it was called "priming the lifter's". yes? no?
As far as firing it up to 2000rpm right away, I'm going to make darn sure my gauge is showing 40 or more lbs of pressure before I take it up that far!
