questions on hydraulic lifters

Hey guys!!
I have a 1965 289 cid, and recently purchased a set of harland sharp 1.6 ratio roller rockers.
The original stock pushrods did not fit or had the correct measurement after I installed the rockers.
Took the measurement and ordered a set of hardened chromoly pushrods from compcams..
Now my engine has stock cam, and stock hydraulic lifters.

My questions are:
What set of hydraulic lifters would be ok to get for my stock replacement. What si the correct messurement on the hydraulic lifters that i need to get
Whats the type of lifter that the stock ford has? flat tappet?
Is the radius meassurement 0.874 in

Need some advice please

Re: questions on hydraulic lifters

Hydraulic lifters for SBF are all the same. Just get good quality ones, skip the no name wharehouse. Use grease or break in lube on the bottoms when you install, & use 15W-40 diesel oil (& not just for breakin). If you take the engine apart, you could consider getting a roller cam & lifters from a newer 302.
