Stupid question - Installing lifters

Ok, so I'm gonna put in a different cam. 2013 FLTRU.

Use the magnetic holder to keep the lifter from falling into the cam chest.

But if I want to replace the lifters while I'm there, after the cam is out, can I drop the lifters into my hand and replace with new ones being careful of the anti-rotating key?

I've done lifters before by removing the lifter blocks.

Just trying to save a step and that's two more gaskets and 8 more bolts not to have to torque.

Why would you not just change the gaskets while your right there?

If you've got a gasket that's sealed, why mess with it??
At least 4 of those 8 bolts like to be a pain in the ass to take out and put back in.

I see no reason whay you couldn't change lifters that way, might want to do one at a time just to make double sure the anti-rotation pin doesn't try to give you fits.

No you can't. The outside lifters fall out, but the inside two hit the crank breaking boss, so the lifter blocks must be removed to replace lifters.
