SBC Lifter plunger Retaining Ring size?
I have accidently broken a couple eyes off two of my lifter plunger retainers during engine inspection. These appear to be the internal snap ring type.
Does anyone have a idea on the sizes that are used for sbc/bb lifters?
If not is there a problem in purchasing a couple new lifters and running them? I have heard that one can get premature cam wear by adding new lifters , whether this is true or not i have no idea but. The cam and lifters are perfect and only have 2500 miles, if that.
