Checking valve lash is the number one reason I'm a Hyd lifter guy
I contemplated going with a solid roller on my Monte years ago. Then I helped my buddy check his valve lash, then I helped him check it again...lol. Then I decided good hyd was the way to go.
Although if they need to be replaced and the solid conversion is cheaper...I may have gone solid.

If you have a friend to help the motor and trans will come right out. I suggest getting a decent load leveler, you can order them from Summit...atleast that's where I got mine. I installed my motor/trans combo by myself a little while back...sucked but I got it done. Two people would make the job mucho easier.
