Question hydraulic lifter question

I soaked my new lifters in oil overnight, and now 2 of them are like frozen solid (won't pump).

Will this effect the lash?
Will they straighten themselves out?

Thanks

Giff,
Most lifter manufacturers tell you not to soak the lifters That being said, they will collapse as soon as you put some valve spring pressure on them.

Dave,
Right now I would say that the Morel lifters are about as good as you can get. Let me know if you need a set.
