I hope you aren't using your old lifters with a new cam. If so, stop! You'll ruin the new cam.

You didn't leave the cam in when pulling the lifters? I hope you don't have too big a problem fishing that lifter out. When you get the cam in, don't leave it with the dots facing each other and try to stab the distributor, turn the motor one full turn first. With the dots aligned, it will be on #6 power stroke, not #1. This is a very common mistake for people being 180 off after installing a cam. That and problems with adjusting rockers (will be on overlap on each cyl.).
