I have a 68 hydraulic lifter 390: dropped the oil pan, found a mess (bits & pieces of a lifter), pulled the intake found a half a lifter hangin out in the valley from the #2 exhaust. before this happened, my lifters all made a horrible racket (drove it home when I really shouldn't have). Any insight and/or suggestions as to what i can do now? the bore for the lifter in question is scratched up pretty bad and i don't think another lifter will fit in. Is there anything I can do? Cam looks fine from what i can see by the way.
