Hyd. lifter cleaning

Say, I'm going to clean my new Sealed Power hyd. lifters prior to installation (because that's how I am, that's why), can I take all of them apart, dump all the lil parts into the cleaning stuff (gently) and go from there? Or should I do one at a time to keep everything matched?

If they are brand new, there is no real reason to take them apart to clean them. If you really have to, do them one at a time and do not mix up the plungers from one lifter body to another.

Sounds like a great way to waste some time & have absolutely nothing to show for it.
