You can look at the top of the lifters and if you see two small wires running across the top (one wire on each side of the pushrod), it's a pretty sure bet you have solid lifters. If there is a snap ring instead of the wires, it's a pretty sure bet you have hydraulic lifters.
Thanks, I will get on it this weekend.

If I have hydrolic lifters I should use a feeler gauge to adjust them?
