Ok, this may sound dumb. When I took the retainer clip out of the lifter, all that came out was the push rod retainer and the small round plate that covers the oil hole below in the top of the lifter. I assumed that a Hyd Roller lifter would act like a Hyd Flat Tappet. There would be some plunger spring effect. They have none. I searched for a cut away view of one so I can see what's going on in there, but I couldn't find anything. There was massive sludge in the second lifter I took apart, so I want to make sure I'm not going to miss anything when I clean and inspect these things. I have stock GM Hyd Roller lifters.
