    I'm having trouble tracking down a supplier of lifters for my 92 mustang, one of them isnt pumping up and its ticking, I need to get a new set. Anyone know how much a set runs and where I can get one?

    Thanks,
    C.J.

    Advance auto parts can order them if they don't have em in stock. My autozone had them in stock. Probably almost any parts store can at least order them for you, and have them the next day.

    How hard are they to replace? My Chilton's doesn't have jack about doing it. I'm guessing ya just have to pull the valve cover and the stuff it takes to do that....then what?

    Just pop off the follower, pull out the old lifter, drop in the new one, replace follower. That's it.

    Buy what you need online on www.advanceautoparts.com and then pick it up in store...best of both worlds use up your money but don't wait for shipping

    btw you can get those from Ford as well. F67z-6500-AA. I only paid $6.40 each.

    -I see that's a '92 you mentioned w/ roller cam. Don't know if those are the same lifters or not. Those are the sliders cam lifters above. I *think* they are interchangable. Anyone know?
