So i bought an (off topic) '69 F250 with a (on topic)390. been sitting for about 10 years. last guy had it running while squirting gas into carb. so far ive went thru the whole fuel system, and put together a good holley 600 for it. i got it running under its own devices. found that it had a dead cylinder, pulled the valve cover off (right side) and found a mess of pushrods. the intake valves were stuck. i got them freed up. ordered a new set of pushrods. looked down at lifters and saw one that was apart. got it all out with a magnet. the little clip is bent so wont hold it together. the way i see it i have 3 options: 1. buy new lifter and install that one. not sure if need to break it in or? 2. buy new lifter and take the clip off, and put old one back together and run it. 3 ?? what says the elders?
