How do you determine if a 1970's Chevy 350 has hydraulic or solid lifters?
Asked in Mazda MPV, Hydraulics
Does a 95 MPV V6 have hydraulic or solid lifters?
It has hydraulic lifters that are known to get noisy. Mazda sells a shim set that can be installed under each lifter to reduce clearance so that the lifters don't require as much pump-up travel. The lifters are located in the ends of the rocker arms, replacing or shimming them requires the removal of part of the intake plenum. You can also buy new lifters in the aftermarket for about $20. each, but there is 12 so it's not exactly cheap.

How do you set roller rockers for 1979 350 v8?
solid or hydraulic cam/lifters? If it is hydraulic, and the lifters are pumped up, you need to tighten the rocker nut until it *just* starts to grasp the pushrod (spin the pushrod while tightening the nut to feel it) Now, tighten the nut from the 12 o'clock position to the 4 o'clock position. Do this with each rocker with each cylinder at TDC of the compression stroke. Cams have cross duration, so the cylinder must be TDC on compressions stroke before adjusting the valves of that cylinder.

What are the pro's and con's with solid or hydraulic lifters-1.6 vw diesel?
Asked in Chevy Cavalier
In a 98 Cavalier once the lifters get used to the style been driven do they loosen up If so how can you tighten them?
It has nothing to do with the lifters getting use to your driving style. Lifters rarely loosen up. Lifters wear over time, thus causing the gap to widen, creating lifter clatter. On solid lifters, that is why they must be adjusted periodically. On hydraulic lifters, this is not necessary, as they automatically adjust for the gap due to wear, if they were installed and adjusted correctly in the first place.

What is the engine ticking noise?
As you give very little information as to make, model, engine size or year, and exactly when it is ticking, this is just an educated guess. Normally this is valve noise caused by valve clearance issues. If it has solid lifters then they need adjusting. If it has hydraulic lifters, they may be clogged and sticking. If it has hydraulic lifters try adding a can of Seafoam engine tune to a fresh oil filter change. It can be purchased at many auto parts stores. Drive the car for 500 miles and change the oil and filter again. You may have to do this more than once to remove the deposits in the lifters. If this does not work, then the valve stems or lifters are worn, and need adjustment or possible replacement.

Asked in Ford
I have a 73 torino and theres clicking coming from the head could it be a bad lifter?
Yes, or it could be a lifter out of adjustment. Some 1973 Ford Torino V8s had solid lifters that must be manually adjusted. Depends on which engine you have. If your engine has hydraulic lifters add a can of Seafoam Motor Tune to your oil. Follow the directions on the can. This will clean the lifters and possibly save you the trouble of replacing one.
