How to tell if lifters are stuck/bad?
I did a GG heads/cam build last year and put in brand new lifters. I've got a brutal clacking noise coming from the valve covers. I already replaced the baffles, but that didn't make an improvement.
I'm pulling the lifters this week, how can I diagnose them as good or not? Anything else that might be going on? When adjusting the rockers, I did a 3/4 turn past zero lash.
