Question about Subaru DL
This is actually a Subaru manufacturing fault in the cylinder heads.
Its not the lifters it is a lack of oil supply to the lifters which are in the cylinder heads, through the lubricating orifice which gets blocked and they need to be cleaned out.
Unfortunately the only way that this can be resolved is to do an engine flush 3 times and then on the 3rd one remove the sump and the oil pump and filter and clean these items.
Then replace the oil filter and the oil pump, and sump then it will be ok.
I know this problem too well as I have had 4 of these and had to do this to solve this problem, not to mention the many I have done in a workshop also.
Hope this helps, let me know if you need more information.
