OK taking the lifter apart was a snap! Much easier than I anticipated. When I got it apart I found a bunch of stinky yellow translucent liquid in the bottom. Pretty thin viscosity so I don't think this is oil. Is this some sort of rust inhibitor? I am guessing that is not good to have in an engine. Perhaps I need to take apart all the lifters and drain that crap out before they are installed??? I don't recall reading anything about lifter dissassembly in the included cam literature.
