New lifters? Seriously?

So apparently anytime you pull the push rods out of the motor, you have to replace the lifters also, or your gonna bend valves. The lifters will not recollapse into their normal position. I've never heard of you guys having to do this, nor have I ever heard of a bent valve on a 6.0

Experts, please tell me the guy saying this is full of crap.

I've heard of roller lifters failing before, but never heard of needing to replace them after having the pushrods out. If the roller lifters have failed, the camshaft would need to be replaced as well. Camshaft replacement, is an ENGINE-OUT job, end of discussion.

I'm sorry. But I call BS on having to replace lifters if the pushrods are removed for any reasons. If there is evidence of roller lifter failure visible on the cam lobe itself, then YES the lifters as well as the cam will need to be replaced as a set. Now comes the scary question. If the needle bearings on the roller lifters fail, where do they end up?

Thank you, this guy talking to us that to 6.0 is a big piece and if you have to pull anything off the motor to throw it away.
