When your dealing with 4 bad lifters,you want to treat the cause and not the effect,the four bad lifters.Deductive logic says there is a reason behind why four lifters when bad.Question if you have a blocked oil gallery.But to find the root cause is going to prevent it happening again with the new set of lifters.Those lifters once preloaded have to turn in their bores while the engine is being turned over and you can check that with the intake off.Also the lobes and just the way they look really doesn't mean much.What they measure as will tell apart of the story.
