I'll take a guess here and say you drive some kind of Mopar with a 340 engine? If that is true and the heads are OEM type heads, the lifters are not adjustable. The rail that holds all the rockers is all there is. If they are noisey, you may need to replace them. If you have any head work done, make sure they set the valve stem length correctly, especially if any milling is done to the block or heads.

Dipstick? Bent it, twist it, or shorten it?

If the dipstick is hitting the brake booster - it ain't a MoPar. 273/318/340/360's dipsticks are at the front of the engine. 350/361/383/4oo/413/426/440 are on the drivers side of the engine between the first and second cylinder.

Take a look at the Lokar dip sticks. I have one in my car and it is very short, it will clear. The bad part is you better check your oil before you start the car cause you have to reach between the header tubes to get to it. I use welding gloves if I need to check it once the engine is hot.
