    Did you keep an old lifter? A wild guess from me is that you could have 10 thou oversize original lifters, and new loose ones are letting the oil in all of the time and over inflating them. Do you...

    It is now more confusing because both heads have a compression problem. You need to measure a push rod length, and compare with an old one. Where did the parts come from?

    When the lifter is in the back of the cam position, any force from the push rod, will overcome the weak spring in the lifter, and push the tiny piston down, releasing the oil back into the gallery....

    I don't have the spec for the valves, only read it and didn't save it because I had new heads and block. The valve grind should not be a problem, as no machine cutting was used. If you find...

    Yes you need the starter for a compression test. Hopefully you didn't lap the valves in a lot, the lifter tolerance is limited, but I can't remember where the measurement of protruding valve stem is...
