Bad Lifter, but which side??

Does anyone know of a way to figure out which side of the engine a lifter might have failed?

pull the valve covers and watch the rockers as you crank or use a dial indicator and check the movement as you rotate the motor

Does not really matter, you gonna have to put a new cam and all lifters in anyways

not like you can just put in a new lifter

General note:
For all those wanting a premium silicone sealer Kubota 70000-73764 is the best your gonna find. This is a hybrid gray silicone that uses solvent rather than acid to start the curing reaction, this makes it safe for aluminum and and any surface that involves coolant.
