Post Wear on followers

Newman & those that do not know this
All followers are ground a eliptical shape
with time, wear & lack of maintenance the cam wears a dish into it.
Should you then stick your feeler gauge between lobe & follower you will not take this ground out hollow into effect & get noise
maybe even big noise
New followers or I just resurface them if they are not too bad
Just want to mention this, as it gives the fits to many mechanics.
Therefore I only give a guarantee on a reground cam if we regrind the lifter too, or new ones get installed !
Don't take life too seriously; no one gets out alive !
