I own a 1950 Buick with 320ci Engine. I was always believing that it was equiped with hydraulic lifters.
Now I have found out that my 320ci Straight 8 engine does not have the standard hydraulic lifters. It is running with solid lifters, please see attached pictures.
As I need to change several push rods I do not exactly know if I can follow to the valve lash adjustment regarding the specs of a solid lifter engine like the Buick 40 or 50 series.
Also I have already contacted oldbuickparts.com to ask for pushrods that measures 13.38 to 13.46 inches, but unfortunately they dont have them and even dont know a source to buy such.
What would be a good reason to have the hydraulic lifters changed to solids?
Many thanks for any help!!!
