Before installing the lifters I oil down the lifter bores along with the lifter valley.
The face of the lifter received assembly lube to insure I don't damage the lobes of the camshaft during break in. Lubriplate was applied to the lifter cup where the pushrods sit to combat wear as well.
After lubrication, the lifters were dropped into their bores and the pushrods were slid into place.
The valvetrain went on next. The later AMC engines have a non adjustable valve train so you just torque the rocker bridges to 26lbs. Here they are after cleaning. The fuel pump eccentric is down there in the right hand corner.
Here the valvetrain is installed and torqued.
