Some old timers always filled oil filters to prevent running the engine without it picking up oil from the sump fast enough. This actual had more to do with the old cartridge style filters as the oil had to be forced through it before it would start oil flowing freely through them, I think of the earlier luberfiners in trucks, they also needed to be bled. It is a good idea but some other school of thoughts are more chance to put unfilters or contaminated oil in. So truth be said it is 6 of one and a half dozen of another.... Whatever you decide is fine.

2002 explorer 4.0L sohc: I've stripped driver side down to ticket arms and tip of lifters. Is there anyway to replace the lifters without removing the head?


I think they have a tool that you can slide the lifters out of the head without removing the head. I've never done this on this particular vehicle but I have on Ford V8 engines from the 70s without any problem. I'm pretty sure you don't need to remove the heads to replace the lifters.

How do i turn the lifter in the right place if i did not take it apart?


It technically does not matter because even though there is an oil hole to one side of the lifter, the oil gallery in the lifter valley pumps oil around the ridge in the lifter. Standard hydraulic lifters can spin anyways.

Roller lifters should be installed same lobe and roller direction. If not sure install with oil hole facing rear. (oil pressure from this direction)

Technically if reused, all lifters should be installed back on the same lobe...if possible. You'd probably be ok with couple unknowns if engine in overall good condition. It's just with a very worn engine and valve train combined with very low oil pressure, switching lifters around could create a condition that could "wipe" a lobe on the cam and a valve could cease to lift.

It's also a good idea to soak clean lifters briefly in oil (until air bubbles gone) to assist in initial valve train pump up.

Hope this helps.

How to make solid lifters


Cut/machine them from a hardenable billet and make sure to provide oiling to the valve train to accomodate the changes to the oiling gallery dynamics with the switch. Plus you need to have adjustability in the valve train to maintain safe operating clearances of the valve train.

Depending on the engine, solid lifters may already be available from various manufacturers who produce solid lifter racing cams. Like Melling, Crane, Crower, etc.

Some engines such as the old flathead V8 Fords were solid lifter the entire time.

Need to know how to adjust valves on 1989 ford festiva l


They are self adjusting. There should be hydraulic lash adjusters. Just tighten down the camshaft and start it. If you installed new lifters, they need to be soaked in oil before installing or they will be full of air and the car probably won't start. Hope this is what you were looking for.

What is the tapping sound under my hood that causes my car to shut off when i come to a stop i have a 1999 crown victoria its like its not getting enough gas


probably blown a lifter. means valves are not operating properly starving the engine out. this sometimes happens if you use cheap (ie generic store brand) oil or you run with dirty oil, once the lifters fail the only thing you can do pretty much is replace them. i would recommend getting a mechanic to confirm this before you go ripping the heads apart as this can be a tedious and sometimes costly job.

How do the lifters go on a monte carlo 1999


You will need to pull the intake manifold and once you have it off, remove the rockers and push rods. Then you can remove the lifters. This is a pretty intense job (about 3.0 hrs for the novice). If you are installing new lifters then you will need to soak the new ones in oil for about 30 minutes before install.
