Cool lifters

Are they mechanical or hydraulic lifters? Plus, how many miles are on that engine?

I think those are hydraulic; no adjustment. Any reason why you think they need adjustment?

If you have a lifter making noise, chances are it might be clogged with sludge instead of it being collapsed. Run some engine flush cleaner through your engine oil and try to free up that lifter. You can find out which one is making the noise by doing a cylinder balance test. Short out each spark plug wire and when you here the sound of the lifter change, you found the cylinder.
