Need Hemi Mechanic for collapsed lifter Orlando

I was told to use the old lifters because they are more reliable. Are there mechanics that can pull the heads and replace the lifter if no other issues when we pull the heads. Brad Thompson 407-289-7442

Yes you can simply swap lifters without issue when removing the heads. The cam lobe will need to be inspected at that point but it’s a simple look down the hole type deal. If it’s all good swap lifter put head back on with new gaskets fill it up and your good to go. I am down in ft pierce and work on a lot of members trucks already if you wanna bring it to me I know it’s a drive/tow but it will be cheaper than a shop.

Welcome to HTC.

Always a good idea to pre-lube the engine after changing out the lifters.
