I am putting my shovel topend back together I was checking out my tappets and one of the lifters won't slide out of tappet body like the other three is this a big deal or does it need addressed my bike has the solid push rod conversion kit installed 77 flh I have them all four out of tappet blocks on bench checking out one just seems stuck in assembly the other three lifters slid right out of tappet roller maybe this is no big deal since I am running solid push rods
Thanks

Whatever is holding it up is not supposed to be there. You may need to get it out of there and hone it to smooth up the bore surface. Never let anything to chance with these old motors. It will bite you in the ass someday...
