Re: [MBZ] How to rebuild hydraulic lifters

Thanks for the early Atta whatzit.No pictures yet.The lifters are a mixed lot 
of 20 that I'm using for practice. Some are clean and almost dry and some are 
partially filled with black guck.I'll post more as the experiment continues.

Interim report.The method demonstrated in the video did not work for me, as I 
could not get them to separate.So, in best english fashion, I had to make-do 
and make a tool.The tool is a 2 ft long piece of 1x3 oak and holds the lifter 
in a simple clamp, open side down. A few whacks on the bench and the valve pops 
out.The wrists on the guy in the vid must have been strengthened by many short 
stroke oscillations.YMMVFred.

 Looks interesting, but I wouldn't completely fill each lifter with oil
 before installing.  I've had to fight through an over-filled lifter before,
 it would be better to install them flat and let them inflate to proper
 height in-situ.

ATTABOY!

You shoulda seen the tools and jigs we made in Greenland to help us in 
rebuilding 10 LARGE (well, I thought they were large then) Diesel generator 
engines.
