  • lifter question

    I have a 79 cj 5 that has a lifter ticking. The motor is a 258 inline 6 with 92,000 miles with non adjustable lifters. I was told if i change that lifter it will mess my cam up then i would be putting a new cam this correct? The rod for that lifter is good but i havent tried replacing the rocker arm yet either. Thanks for any help

    You can put a new lifter on an old cam, but you can't put a used lifter on a new cam.

    Things to check/replace

    lifter, pushrod (must measure length for wear), rocker arm, pivot and bridge.
