    Default Roller Lifters

    Can anyone tell me which way the oil hole goes on roller lifters?
    Thanks,

    Many say the oil hole should face the center of the block. I can tell you from experience that I have taken apart dozens of roller lifter 5.0's and there has never been any rhyme or reason to the positioning. Also it shouldn't matter as the oil will flow around the lifter from the oil passages and pressurize the lifter either way. Good Luck!
