if I am replacing the cam the lifters get changed too. (lifters develop a wear pattern with the cam)
You can put new lifters on an old cam no problem but not old lifters on a new cam, well you can but not recommended.

40,000 kms so I figured it was time. Did a seafoam treatment to clean the top end. I put 2/3 of a bottle slowly into my brake vacuum line with the engine running at idle. Shutdown for five minutes and poured the rest into my tank. Started it back up and left with my truck to run an errand. What a smoke screen I had behind me, the neighbours must have thought I broke my truck LOL. Anyway it seemed to do a great job and it does seem to run smoother now. Overall a good experience and the look on my neighbours face was priceless.

I finally broke out the old trusty, "If All Else Fails, Read The Instruction Book." I spent an hour trying to figure out how all of the controls work with the automatic temperature control and setting up the instrument cluster display options.

I only have to find the display for the altitude, cabin pressure and making sure the landing gears are up.

I am thinking about getting my truck rust-proofed with Krown.

How much did it cost and did they do a good job?

Turned out to be a nice day, so reinstalled my toolbox and tonneau cover, rewired a bunch of wiring I had installed I knew I was gonna have to redo, moved my backup camera power from reverse light to trailer harness and works way better now, and now wondering when I am gonna have to drop some money for better than stock tires.
