I just took a set out of my son's ElCamino 'big block' Apparently someone tightened them too much and they [one] ate the cam...car just never sounded right like it had a knock under certain loading...seems the worn lifter might have been allowing leakage and either pre-detonation or hot air leakage anyway we put in a new performance cam and lifters and it now sounds like Chevy and run out nice. I suggest they can be problematic you gotta know what your doing
