I haven't gotten into the lifter issue. Still working on the EEC issue. The lifter sounds like I need to take the intake and all the associated junk off the engine first. A " Make sure you have enough flat work space to put all the parts in order " sort of task.

I need to get some follow up replies on the other thread.

Prolly got a piece of crap stuck inside the lifter, add some seafoam and run it a couple heat cycles then change the oil.
That's what I would do.
It is a roller engine right?
That seafoam stuff is awesome I poured a can it into the crank case drove it 300kms changed the oil and it got rid of my sticky lifter tick after startup.
