roller rockers w/hydraulic lifters

somehow my friends and i got on the topic of roller rockers. one of my friends was like man i wiped a lobe on my cam, im running roller rockers and solid lifters.....my friend was like yeah you didnt give the rockers enough lash (he set the lash to factory) well my question is when you set up roller rockers with hydraulic lifters, do they need to be backed off and if so how much slack should i give them? i dont think i would need to back them off, but i would rather ask than find out the hard way.

with Hydraulic lifters you don`t set the lash as you would with solids, hydraulics are adjustment free once they`ve been set. the hydraulic action and plunger assembly of the lifter itself compensates for lash. a soild is just that, a solid piece of steel so adjustments have to be precise. if your going to roller rockers and running hydraulic lifters, adjust them the same as you would any hydraulic cam.

setting Preload on Hydraulic Lifters

Here's how I do it.

This is for pedestal type rockers
that you have to shim, but it should
be basically the same for stud rockers.

There, you're turning down the adjustment nut rather than putting shims under the pedestal.

Same principle.
