Re: Replacing lash adjusters (lifters) on a 93 Fairlane
I've always been told to avoid regular grease, but to use assembly grease, but that was just for general assembly. Any time I open valve covers, I wash as best I can the lifter assemblies and spray parts cleaner down the drain ports to flush them clear. Last thing prior to putting the covers back on, I pour clean oil over the lifter\rocker assemblies and make sure the drain ports are draining freely. Reassemble, then change the oil and filter. Not sure if there's anything engine specific with yours.
Ever notice that there's so many high performance parts available for GM products?
Did you ever think that maybe they NEED them?
