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.

Yes, you can put new lifters on an old cam with no problems, just not the other way around.
If your removing lifters and reusing them MAKE SURE you label them so they go back into the same hole of the cam lobe will wear.
