Well yeah.. but SHHH!! You dont know that!

Hey, paying $3.00 for a spring isnt soo bad when you remember that the roller lifters cost $11.00 a piece!

YOU might pay 11 bucks for a roller lifter. I don't.

I've cleaned and inspected scads of roller lifters just as 87442 describes. As long as there hasn't been a lof a abrasive debris run through the the oiling system (the stuff from Scotch-Brite discs comes to mind) there is little to go wrong and at 5 or 6 bucks a lifter, I can make a buck or two and save my customer a pile of bucks.
