Hi guys i bought my el fairmont a few weeks ago, i have since changed engine oil+filter, air filter, fuel filter, diff oil, flushed the brake fluid and im gonna do a trans service next week. The night before the service i opened the beast up a bit and it kicked back and revved pretty hard and the lifters started making noise :shock: How hard is it to change the lifters? Has anyone done it that an comment? Im going to get a gregorys workshop manual this week and get some lifters soon.
