    basicly the seals are gone in the lifter,and it wont hold pressure.its a simple fix if youve ever done a cam swap.thats basicly all you have to do.remove the intake and change them out.it would be a good time to do a cam swap if you want.it would be best to do that,normally an old cam doesnt like new lifters and the other way around.

    it means the hydrualic part in the lifter has collapsed and the oil can't pump it back up to push the push rod up to open the valve allthe way. which means $$$. the carb and intake manifold needs taken off then loosen the rocker arms take out push rods and lifters. I don't know if you need a new cam if you just do lifters but if you do a cam you DO need new lifters.I just did cam lifters and timing chain on mine (first time) and its a job. make sure not to over tighten the rockers. I've still got the order of tightening of rockers if you do it yourself private me if you need it.
