1997 C36 AMG and a 2012 C350 CDI
Hi I have a 1997 C36, I just replaced the headgasket and reconditioned the head and the machine shop. I was installing the lifters in and the last lifter on cylinder 6 won't go in like its getting wedged/stuck 1/4 way in. The surface of where the hydralic lifter seats is smooth but do feel a Slight ridgeand I did use oil before I attempted to install it. The lifter is not the issue because it fits fine on any of the other cylinders. Do you think it's a good idea to lightly sand the ridge down with fine sandpaper or a dremel. I'm completely stumped , please help.
