the question i wanted to ask is that when you change the camshaft on a bew engine do you need to change the lifters as well ? if they look good still needs to be changed ?
i heard that there are upgraded ones that has black color , true ?
Yes the new cam followers are black and replace the chrome colour ones which are not upto the job. Had to change mine in september along with camshaft and bearings. There's a thread on this section ''cam follower wear'' with a picture of my pooped cam followers all exhaust one's BTW.
