    Welcome to the world of big blocks...

    you will need to feed your engine an ample amount of fuel, a quart of oil or so between changes and the occasional cam nd lifter set /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif BBC's are notorious for eating cams...I already looking for reliable roller cams/lifter sets and I haven't even installed my freshly rebuilt BBC....I just expect it to happen...esp. with higher spring pressures /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    Lifters looking food though

    After seeing your pic's joe, i had to go find my old parts....
    I remember after hearing you describe the symptoms your engine was making... this is what came to mind:
