Appreciate the reply Jack.

For some reason I had it in my mind the lifters didn't rotate.

Page 490: Column 2, lines 3-8.

Interesting read....... and seeing them talk about things like pressure recovery in those stock heads...... back in 1953.
I also liked that part about the cam design and the lifter pump up at 5300 for the intake valves, and 5500 for the exhaust........ with the springs set up at 62/144.

I wonder if they continued to use chilled iron lifters and steel camshafts for the entire production run of that engine family.
Somewhat handy with a die grinder.

View of the Buick XP 300 Engine mentioned in Kevin's link.

Gives an idea of what the Buick Engine guys were thinking.

There is no logical reason to call an Engine a motor.
