The other day, a customer brought his small truck in for a noisy lifter he wanted repaired. A lifter is actually part of the valve train. It is between the camshaft and the valve and may use a pushrod, rocker arm, and/or other hardware in order to work as well. The lifter may be mechanical or hydraulic, and sometimes they can be adjusted and sometimes not, depending on how the engine was manufactured. . . .
