Anyway it uses GM 4.3L hydraulic lifters and involved some minor grinding here and there. I'm setting the engine up on a test stand to break it in. Will be interesting (to say the least) to see how things work out, since this is very eclectic and not in any book.

I'm not the Author. Same place I got most of the Info though. I've done 2 of these so far. 406 with ZZ4 & 355 with RamJet 350 cam for cheap from Ebay. Both into NonRoller blocks. The lifters I used were the 2.2L4, 3.1 & 3.4V6. Hard to beat the price $75 for Spider/Retainer,Guides,& New Lifters--TheAllChevyShop Ebay Store. Both engines are running good so far. About 15,000 mi on the 355. Keepin my fingers crossed.
