I don't know where you got that from. I said above "It would only lose lift if there was clearance between the pushrod and rocker arm." In other words, if the cam, lifter, pushrod, rocker arm, and valve tip have zero clearance between them, there will not be any loss of lift. BUT- if there is any clearance between the parts, that will reduce the lift.
