My roller rockers werent adjusted right and when my car started I believe it collasped all the lifters. Now the car wont start and i need to know how to pump up the lifters with oil again and how to adjust the RR's again. Do i need to adjust them twice....do i need to oil pump prime the engine to get the lifters pumped up. Help me out here guys...and is there a good chance that the pushrods got bent when the lifters collapsed. By the way..this was a qualified mechanic that F*$ked my whole car up

Thanks for the Help
Joe

un do all the rockers, primed the oil pump and lifters by using electric drill and socket to fit in oil pump drive shaft, do this for 10 minutes and crank the engine by hand, not by starter. Keep doing this till you see oil coming out of push rod or rocker oil hole then adjust the rocker.
