well, i understan his rant tho. i am not sure how the lifters work in the 7.3. but you would think international would make an engine that can be serviceable and reliable.

seems to be a hit and miss on these engines.

I think what he meant by "insignificant" is that a lifter is small and cheap part.

I can't stand those videos. He could make them about 1/4 as long if he didn't ramble out his @$$.

I want to remove my insignificant lifters and not for weight savings. the way I see it is if I take them out that won't happen to my motor.
