If they are flat tappet. Clean your present lifters. Do not mix them up. Return to original holes if they pass wear inspection. Otherwise replace cam and lifters.

With the modern oils, you will destroy the assembly, if you put new lifters on an old cam

If the lifters are roller. Inspect the camshaft for wear pattern. If cam has no pits or bad spots. Install new lifters and re assemble..
