Soak in Chem Dip until you can get the actual hydraulic adjuster apart and clean it out.

I thought I had it apart that far. Removed the cap and clip, removed the inner piston and the spring underneath......I thought all I had left was the housing with the roller. The piston moves nice and smooth against the spring now.

Only thing left to do is flush out the check ball hole with brake cleaner. If its possible.

Soaking and flushing works. The inner piston of the actual lash adjuster will come out of there once the crud is dissolved. Chem Dip or Piston Clean and time is all that I found that will work. An ultrasonic tank and heat helps speed up the process.

I brought the rest of the lifters into work tonight. If I don't get slammed with trouble calls I may get the last 6 apart and cleaned out. A heat gun and air tool oil were very helpful.

OldNuc, if the pictures upload is there more to disassembling the roller lifter than the 4 items pictured plus the top retaining clip?

Ok I'll take one apart again. Inside the small cylinder is a hole with a ball below it. From the bottom there is a cup that loos like it houses the spring pushing against the ball.

Hopefully here is a second picture I took with the small cylinder (piston?) on end.

That is the ball check end and that has to seal tight. What does the other end look like?

What I want to see is the other side of the top and what the inside of the other side looks like. There are thousands of different adjuster designs, trying to ID the design.

Ok it will be a day or so. There at the garage. The spring goes in the main body that the roller is pinned into. Then the piston goes in next and the check ball cavity goes inside the spring. I'll pull one apart hopefully tomorrow.

Yes, thats all of it so soak in Chem Dip or Piston Clean until all parts are crud free and the check ball holds against a hard squeeze when it is all filled with any Xw-50 oil. reassemble with the 50 weight in them and let the valve springs squeeze them down to size, tighten rocker shafts slowly and evenly or they will break when doing this.

Clean oil is required. The oil change rate in those is very slow so prefilling and ejecting the air tends to keep them clean for a long time.

Either will work fine. Do not over fill as squeezing out excess takes awhile. After assembly of all rocker gear crank engine over 3 or 4 times by hand to get the process started or you will have valves trying to hang open.
