inspect and clean hyd. roller lifter

An old thread from2004 tells how to break them down.
The pics are gone, can't find much on the inner web.
Put one in a vice and some pressure, it didn't appear to want to move. Just how stiff are these springs any way?
This is a scrap yard motor so who knows how long it sat.
Soaking them in stinky stuff right now.
Would a little heat help?
thanks Pat

You can get a set of the Delphi OEM roller lifters from Skip White Performance for $98.Best deal I've found so far on GM rollers.

I took some apart, they were roller lifters from a Chevy 2.8 L. Take out the retainer an the cup, then I used a short Chevy head bolt an wrapped electrical tape around the threaded end. I wrapped it 3 or 4 times then took some off for a better fit. Then I put the taped end into the lifter an pushed that in by using my big bench vice. I pressed the bolt into the lifter untill it was getting tight. Old oil will come out of the hole on the side. Then I took it out of the vice an started to pull the bolt out with my fingers an the tape sort of acts like a cork an you can pull out the piston from inside of the lifter. You want a real tight fit with the electrical tape but not so tight that the tape is pushed off the bolt when compressing it. That old oil inside the lifter acts like a seal, I tried soaking them also didn't work. Some O-rings on the threads of the bolt might work as well. Theirs a small spring, ball bearing an a small round disc with a hole in it. I wouldn't use air on the hole on the side of the lifter cause those small parts are going to fly. More than half of them I had to use needle nose pliers to pull out the piston.

what kind of fubar'd lifters are you working with? Pull the retaining clip and they come apart pretty easily. If they don't get another set, they're all over the junkyards. With thousands of them to choose from why pick the ones that are likely the most worn?
