Is there any way you can get a roller lifter out without pulling the head? I have a failing lifter, and I\'m just trying to find the easiest way to get to it. Thanks in advance.

I can think of only one way but taking the cylinder head off is way easier. To over simplify the procedure, you could pull the pan, oil pump, water pump, timing cover, crank, cam, and shove it through from underneath... only after the transmission has been pulled.

and that's only after the intake has been pulled so the rigging to keep the lifter properly oriented in its bore can be removed (if removeable).

I'd yank the head. You may wanna repost in the racing forum where some of the more experienced wrenches hang out.

Thanks for the help, I posted it in the racing section, like you suggested I was told already to take the lower intake manifold off and unbolt the rocker arms so I can pull the pushrods out then I can get to the lifters. I tried that and it doesn\'t work. Maybe because I have really short decked block or some really long roller lifters.

get the intake off. take the spider thing off. remove the little H looking hold down. remove the pushrod. the lifter should pull right out of the hole. try wrapping a rag around it to keep fromm scaring it and pull with some plyers.
