so i took a look at the lifters.
as expected, there was a small hole in the side. i had noticed the indent originally, but didnt notice the little hole
anyway, does it matter which side the hole is on during install? im guessing the oil is supplied to both sides of the lifter?

Yes, its supplied on both sides of the lifter. It doesnt matter which way it is installed, and the wishbone is what keeps the lifter lined up with that oil passage in the lifter bore. Just in case you were wondering

thanks. the wishbone thing i figured out pretty quick.
i figured both sides of the lifter would be supplied, but wasnt 100% sure about the lifters on the ends. wouldnt make sense for them to not be the same as the rest, but i didnt want to assume anything
