When you say solid lifters, do you mean they are not roller lifters? Or can hydrolic lifters also not have rollers.

When you asked whether they were solid or hydrolic I thought ou were asking whether they were roller lifters.

If I have the right lifters with my cam how would i adjust them?

I can contact the builder to make sure, but I am pretty sure he matched the cam and lifters up properly.
