Re: Engine Rebuilt

Is it necessary to pre-soak lifters in mineral spirits a day before? I don't seem to have the ability to find the reasoning behind it, but CompCams has it listed as a to-do before installation.

I was wondering if that is something that would even out the internal pressures. Only 2 or 3 of them have finger moveable play. The others are all stiff. They're fresh outta the box unused, unabused (I assume...).

If so I'll have to wait for someone to get home to take me to the mineral spirit store. Is there anything else I should get while I'm out?
