    Well, developed a tick the other day, so I pulled the valve cover and I had a rocker not oiling. Pulled the rocker fine, pulled the pushrod, fine. 20171202_112431.jpg

    Pulled the intake and lifter and the lifter has something jambed in it or it is broken internally. Either way, ordered a new set and should be back together before New Years. 20171202_140633.jpg

    Forgot to reply with the results.
    Found out the lifters had been discontinued and had to replace them all and JEGS sent me the wrong set so had to wait for a refund, then reorder again. Finally received them in the mail and installed. Seems to be working again. So it is running again.

    They are Boyd Coddington Rebels, they made a very limited run of them right before he died and then cut them when the company was sold to wheels pro. So they are pretty rare.
