Re: Lube new lifters with same lube as new cam or use oil???
Take it out, take it apart and clean everything and the piddle valve. set it into a can submerged in oil, if you can, use the stroking action of a drill press to purge air and take in oil. You have to get the air out, new school, old school or no school. Lube bottom and drop in. If it will not take in the oil or expell the air, you will have to try an other lifter. Then worry about mating surfaces, again. Marvel oil is good for freeing stuck internals.
