heavy lifter wear ?

85 302 2V. 20.000 on rebuild, forged pistons .30 over RV cam nothing special. Iím getting a lot of lifter wear way more then it should be, I did the rebuild my self and yes I do know what Iím doing. Could this be a problem with the push rods being to long I cant remember for sure how much the block was decked and how much was removed from the head. At first it sounded like a stuck lifter but then it was two then three and so on. I remember from when I was a machinist that 302ís of this time period picky with valve train . any help would be good thanks

Re: heavy lifter wear ?

Is the rocker contact in the middle of valve stem ??
85 is that early roller motor??
Springs etc in good condition ???
Was there some preload when tightened rocker down??

Re: heavy lifter wear ?

Have to check lifter to cam alignment. Windsors usually real good in this dept especially compared to holdent b8 . Geometry probs usually destroy top end gear first unless your in coil bind (don't think it would do 20000 though..)
