How do you test lifters in a Chevy 350?

If you have any doubt, replace them. If the engine is running, you can pull a rocker cover and see if you can find a noisly lifter by slipping a thick feeler gauge between the valve and the rocker while the engine is running. If that significantly changes the sound of the noisy lifter, it's probably bad and you should replace it. Once the engine is torn down, just replace any lifter that's suspicious. Many people replace them every time they tear the engine down.

What is the procedure to determine a collapsed lifter and how do you replace them on a 83 ford crown Victoria with a 302 fi?

If the lifter has failed, the engine will run poorly due to no valve action on that cyl. Confirmation would be to remove the valve cover to see which valve is not working. You will have to remove the intake to get at the lifter, and if you do that, the might be good to replace them all, hopefully the cam is still good. It is possible that the cam is worn also.That can be replace at the same time thru the front of the engine when you strip it.

If it's a hydraulic lifter, you don't need a feeler gauge You can adjust 1, 2, 5, & 7 intakes and 1, 3, 4, & 8 exhausts from the #1 TDC position. The rest would be done by rotating the engine one revolution to #6 TDC. When you're in the correct position for the lifter you want to adjust, tighten the rocker nut until there is no backlash on the pushrod and an additional 1/2 turn for preload.
