Those imported lifters are sub-standard.
One of the reasons we use an S&S adjustable pushrod is to insure full lifter pre-load to be maintained when the engine is at full thermal expansion.
.140" is the number we set our stocking S&S lifters at, and then the use of the proper viscosity engine oil, for the ambient air temps which is stated in the service manuals.
Very quiet engine operation at that point, as this is the method/procedure/parts we've used here, from years of experience.
Anyone can do what they wish, but we will not deviate from our learned methodology, and out clients appreciate that.
