So I ditched the Tahoe for a Caprice

So what do I do?

Just watched a rebuild video from “The Skid Factory” where they’re rebuilding a GM block (not an LS, but hydraulic roller) and the lifter supplier said to just soak the rollers, not the whole lifter. Something about the rocker adjustment with preloaded lifters and having a lifter collapse on initial startup, they’d rather they build up the pressure.

So many people also say just install oil pump dry and then just start it up. Some people say turn out over with the starter with no plugs and fuel pump fuse pulled.

Fighting the urge to pack it with Vaseline which you have to do with Buick oil pumps since they’re shit and external on the timing cover.
