I've got an oiling issue. Do the 2001 windsor heads have different oil passages than 1995 stock cougar heads? It sounds like the lifters have no oil.

same passages, could be clogged up though, or you could have bad lifter/followers, are they new or used? did you presoak them in oil before you installed them like your supposed to?

The heads came off a running engine. Follow up question. Are the head gaskets side specific? How much oil should you expect to come out of the holes in the rocker arms when cranking the engine over without starting? Thanks. Right now there in little to none.

Of course the gaskets are side specific.
