Hydraulic Lifters

I AM GOING TO PUT NEW HYDRAULIC LIFTERS IN BUT WHEN YOU BUY THEM THEY ARE COLLAPSED HOW DO YOU AJUST THEM WHEN YOU PUT THEM IN. THEY ARE FOR A 350 CHEVY 73.

The lifters aren't collapsed. I just let them soak in a can of oil overnight and install them. It makes me feel better...don't know if it really does any good, but certainly nothing bad.

PS: ALL CAPS IS SHOUTING!

lifters

A few questions..

What are you working on??? chevy, john deere???

Why are you replacing just the lifters???

I personally never soak the lifters, they should be installed with lube on the face and engine oil on the out side diameter.... Then adjusted and the engine should then be primed with a drill to fill the lifters.
