Ya I did chase my tail for a while trying to figure it out, but at least I did.
 I don’t have a dial indicator. The lobes look fine, nothing unusual on them or the lifter bottoms. I cut the oil filter open and it looked good.
But I guess that would be a good idea to do. I should probably get one, been wanting one anyway.
This is what I use. https://www.jegs.com/i/Proform/778/66838/10002/-1  Chuck
Thanks again Chuck!

btw for what it's worth.
Despite the one lifter that wasn't properly put together on the Summit set, I would actually prefer these above the Crower ones.
Sounds like B brand, but thing is they are more firm than the crowers, and having seen the guts they have also a smarter design inside.
Where the spring uses most of the radius of the cylinder, vs a much smaller one as in crowers.
That alone is preferable in my view as there is less metal stress on them and there is less chance for the valves inside getting out of line as they wear over time.
Oh and they might also be cheaper.

My machinist swears by these, just got off the phone with him. Says he’s never had a bad one or any problems with Crower, says everyone is inspected. They’ve been around for a long time, very reputable brand, but I don’t know what’s going on. Anyway I talked with Crower and they want me to send these back. So I am and will see what they say. Good thing it’s winter now. Getting 4-6 inches of snow today so not driving the car anytime soon.

 Ah, so this has gone way past a possible cracked distributor cap!! Out of my league for sure now, but interesting reading. I learn something new every day.

4-6" of snow in Mi, and I'm complaining about the 2" we have in SW Ontario!! You're welcome to it, this is waaayyy too early.

Freezing rain this morning and snow now.  In MO.  We even had snow flurries Halloween morning.  It is a mess out there!  Good time to catch up on unread posts and fill some knowledge gaps.

Wisdom, knowledge and intelligence are three very different things.

We probably got more like 8-9 right now and it’s still coming down.
