This one is for Benzmac. I'm having the head done after the blown head gasket. It has been disassembled, cleaned, waiting for valve guides, etc. Question..When the head is reassembled, is there a way to prime the lifters without having to disassemble the valve train again. In the old days, we used to crank the engine without the plugs in until a readable oil pressure was evident, put the plugs back in and finish the job. Is this something I can do with these tiny little lifters or is there another alternative that I am not aware of??..
