How did you count pistons with the head bolted down? I would have counted the rocker bosses.

It could just be that you're a badass member of yore who can see through cast iron. Could be.
LOL, I was in a hurry with that post. I used the surrogate you mentioned for counting the pistons. No, I did not use the force, not this time, LOL.

Re: Installing New Lifters w/ Orig./Stock Cam?

I had a GM 5.7 vortec powered vehicle for about a decade.
Noisy lifters is a problem among many of them.
When they started knocking consistently,
I'd replace a quart of motor oil with a quart of ATF for the full 3,000 miles.
Worked well.

Somewhere around 240k I replaced them and the push rods,
Filled the block with desiel and ran the oil pump with a drill, took 17 oil filters before I had clean desiel return.
Slowly flushed it out with oil using the same method.
Sold it to a fella at work, Engine is still kicking it knock free.
