Re: Bad lifter?
Lobe? maybe not, you are saying you are able to see this rocker arm bleed off? Get the financee involved here as looks like all three of you will be a happy family. Get her to turn motor off while you are under the hood to observe.
You did not say how old this lifter was but if it was me, before I drop a new lifter down on a old surface, I would take the lifter out and apart, clean well with varsol or spirits, inspect the assemble with AT fluid or Mystery oil and try again. If lifter is bleeding off, the little valve inside must be leaking.
Last resort is a new lifter or lifters and cam.
