Tryingto figure out if that could occur by the method i use.

Not contradicting your information. Didnt mean to imply you said anythjing. Those are my theories, or what ifs.

My thinking , some engine revs up and drops oil psi. Then the plunger relaxes and creates this pushrod/rocker clearance . So you compress the lifter plunger with preload to allow a saftey margin for this occurance. Is this wrong, or do not get the prupose of preload?

Lose has one o. I think it is like look,or took. The oo sound in loose. Nevermind, stupid thought. Neither here nor there really.
