    Hi my friends.

    Anyone please could help me with some questions?
    I have an explorer 1999 5.0 V8, and I need change the valve lifters.
    I found an M-6500-R302 of Ford Racing, but I don´t know if will fit, because I read:

    "Ford Racing's hydraulic roller lifters feature the same high quality as the pieces that Ford uses as original equipment in the 5.0L HO EFI engine. Some are direct replacements for the OE lifters and are 50-state legal. Others are designed to be used when converting a "non-roller" block to a roller cam. Note that custom pushrods and minor clearancing work to the block may be necessary with these lifters."

    1) So, anyone knows another OEM part number that fits perfect in my original engine? (without custom pushrods or minor clearancing work to the block)

    2) Our original engine uses hydraulic roller camshaft?

    3) It will be necessary replace the gaskets, what kind of gaskets I need buy?

    Follow the links that I found at ebay:

    Thanks a lot any kind of help... :thumbsup:
    Regards,

    1--Those will work

    2--yes

    3-Fel Pro timing -water pump intake and valve covers gaskets ( might be cheaper to get a rebuild gasket set)

    The bottom link will not work for sure. I can't vouch for the second link but they look ok, the first link has 4 pictured you need 16 of them. Make sure they are selling a full set.

    Don't forget about the lifter guides.

    You'll notice a spider plate under the intake manifold--the factory ones in my 98 were plastic and I did not trust them

    Thanks Jon.
    I will check about the quantity before buy. Now I´m more confortable in see that will not be necessary clearance at the block or custom pushrods.
    Only more one help....
    About the Lifter Guides... How many I need buy? It is used to install or it is a engine part.... :confused: (lol)

    Thanks again.
