I'd consider the low risk option of
installing a GM NOS set of lifters.
These are very hard to find in decent
Here's a set on ebay.

You can always send the seller a message
asking him if he'd take an offer.

The lifter you are looking at are for 1950-52 engines. Those engines used steel cams. If you have a late 1954-62 engine, which uses a cast cam, I would not recommended using these.

See the USA in your vintage Chevrolet!
