I will be degreeing the cams in my 2v shortly. I have heard that you can make a solid test lifter by disassembling a factory lifter, removing the spring, and epoxying it together.

I was curious if anyone has ever done this, because I can't figure out how to take the darn thing apart.

I know you can buy solid test lifters, but I was trying to avoid paying $35 if I can just make one with what I have.

There is a collar at the top that appears to be pressed on. Do I need to remove that?

I tried to compress one in a vice and weld it, but I wasn't pleased with the results; I think the above approach would make a more accurate surface for the rocker to attach to.
