Solids are old school high performance items. Unless you really want solids, or building something pretty wild, you won't need them. When you pull the intake...& you see just the lifter & push rod w/o any other clutter, it's not a roller. Rollers have extra stuff to keep the lifter from turning in the bores. You can unbolt a rocker arm, pull the push rod & lifter out & look @ the bottom of the lifter if you aren't sure.
