Is soaking the lifters before installation really something that needs to be done or is this an old mechanics-tale? I have them soaking now to be on the safe side but wanted to know what you guys thought.

I always assumed it was to fill them up with oil, not really soaking.

Soak them. Another old mechanics story just like don't put a battery on concrete. I like keeping those old tech tips alive..kinda goes along with the old cars. Keeps the eera alive....
