    Noisy lifter

    One of my lifters is really noisey.

    Is it just a case of cams out and replace them?

    Anywhere cheap to get them as Vauxhall want £348 retail (£220 through a mate at Vauxhalls) for a set but can get pattern parts for £180

    Easy enough to change if they do get noisy again so its not the end of the world.
