Post reused lifter, cam update

Just fired up my car today after swapping cams, I slightly resurfaced my lifters, just added a slight cross hatch pattern. I ran the 20 minute break in, and so far it seems okay, I figured if it was gonna wipe out the cam it would have did it within the first several minutes. I used a Crane PowerMax cam this go round with 210/216 duration. fuel pressure is back to normal at 5 psi instead of 14 the comp cam had, even so they swore it wasn`t the cams fault. TurboS10 asked me to update when I did this, so here it is. I think now I`m gonna hold on to more used hydraulic lifters, it was just too easy. Thanks to all who said how to do it, that was $50 I kept in my pocket.

Why did ya resurace the lifters were they mixed??Ya know everyone says that mixing the lifters will flatten a cam,and I agree that the risk is a little higher but I don't think its really as bad as they say.As long as the lifters are rotateing,its not wereing one constant surface,its spinninmg the lifter each pass.
Eitherway Good Luck

78 Monte, read the other post on rebuilding hydraulic lifters, my post is on there. I didn`t like the idea at first, but after seeing so many do so, and reading about it on this post, I decided to go for it, the most critical time during break in is the first 10 minutes, I ran it over 20 during break in, and I`ve ran it maybe 20 miles today, no problems yet, tomorrow, I`m taking it 120 miles, if I have any problems, yall will be the ones to hear. I haven`t had to go back and adjust the valves, it fires up when I hit the key. and lastly, if I have no problems, it`s $50 I kept in my pocket. If not, so be it, but I think if I was gonna have any problems, I would have had them by now.
