Well none of them work on bikes anymore but the general feeling was they have seen a lot of high mileage Guzzis with pitted lifters and no problems cause by them. The last couple of Guzzi motors I had apart have had pitted lifters and the cam and bearings looked fine. So it's kind of like yes you should replace them but don't worry about it if you don't.

The motor is almost all together, lifters refinished,new timing chain and tensioner, seals, new left cylinder with new piston and rings, right cylinder cleaned up nice so just new rings.Gear box is out to be gone through.[IMG][IMG]IMG_0065[/IMG][/IMG] Next the frame.
I had some work done on my shoulder back in November so I'm just getting back into the swing of things.

Things are coming along slow on the Eldo, I got distracted by an GS850, for a while then had to get the F7 ready for a tiddler ride.
I'm in the put back together stage, new wiring harness, frame painted, new seals all around, motor gone through , Amal carbs broad and sleaved,IMG_0104 just waiting to get the transmission back.

So you have one cylinder big-bored and one side NOS (83mm)?
