I've seen fair number of reports lately concerning new lifters failing almost instantly. The folks reporting this news are professional shop owners/builders and it appears to be widespread.
You can easily find more information, if you feel the need.
Now might not be a good time to plan an engine rebuild, unless you've got some NOS lifters.
Johnson lifters are the only ones recommended..... All the others are made in China.
