Seperating Lifters


Recommended Posts

These can be a real challenge. I have had luck separating these by forcing penetrating oil into the feed hole at the bottom working the little ball check with a wooden stick. You need to grip the body and twist the plunger. The plunger spring makes this difficult as it is so near the top surface of the plunger. Some times an intermittened sharp tap with a hammer while twisting will help get them apart. Careful heating them might also help before twisting them apart but you need to be careful about any residual flamable solvents.
