Hey all, first off Happy Easter. I’ve got a question about hydraulic lifters and oiling thru the pushrod. If I understand correctly, the lifter receives its oil supply from the hole in the side of the lifter when the lifter is positioned on the base circle of the cam. What causes the oil to be pumped up through the pushrod? Is it from the oil pressure from the oil pump, the plunging action of the lifter, or a combination of both? The reason I ask is this, I’m rebuilding a 351M motor, not for my mustang, but for a 79 F-150 Ranger. I’m using the Tom Monroe book as guidance on the rebuild, and he says to oil the lifters thru the hole on the side until oil comes thru the top of the lifter, oil the sides, assembly lube on the bottom, then install in lifter bore. I did this with a pistol type pressure oil can with fresh oil and noticed some lifters were easy to oil, some took quite a bit of pressure to oil. Just wondering if this was normal. I’m using sealed power HT-900 hydraulic lifters and I’m concerned about if there is a problem with the lifters on the ones that were difficult to oil. Two of the lifters, new out of the package, had no oil hole in the top( picture attached). Just want to do this right the first time, any thoughts?
