The reason the flat tappet cam will not work with roller lifters is because the cam lobe profile is totally different on roller lifter cams and flat tappet cams , and would change cam timing and dwell drastically , So the short answer is NO . You cannot run roller lifters with a flat tappet cam or vice/versa .
