While the engine has sat for quite a long time, the roller lifters easily slid out of the block (after removing the lifter retainer). The older the engine and the more crud you find, the harder it can be to get the lifters out. Sometimes even pliers are required. While we do agree that roller lifters are reusable, part of the reason we parked this engine was from a wiped cam lobe, so new lifters are on the order form.
