1928 Buick Standard/lifter springs

Recommended Posts

I'm restoring a 1928 Buick Standard County Club Coupe.  In dis-assembling the engine I found 4 broken lifter springs.  These are the springs that go over the push-rods and are held in place with a c clip at the bottom and bolt in flanges on the top.  I've been un-able to locate any of these springs to replace.  My question is, are these absolutely necessary to be installed?  It seems the valve spring pressure would be enough to keep all in place with the necessary pressure however, I could use advice.  Thanks, Rod Miles #48784.
