With the leads i normally just stick some Masking tape around each one and write the number on it.
At least you can take it off when your done.

I dont see why there would be a problem with the lifers you have being an AU. Besides at around $30-$40 each x12 they add up. Best of luck, should be easy now you've pretty much done it twice before anyhow.

Re: Hopefully im ready this time...

you can buy a set of the little clips that hold the lifters together for under $20. You just neet to take the old ones apart (there are only 3 pieces that make up the lifter), clean them with carby cleaner, and put them together with the new clips. Easy to do and just as good as a set of new lifters, but a lot cheaper.

I tried this a few months before i replaced my lifters, didnt do squat.
Was a waste of $17.
