BMW M42 Lifters

Can someone give me dimensions on the M42 hyd lifters? I havent removed my head as of yet and possibly wont until I can afford a set of Solid cams to do the upgrade.
Now only reason I am asking as I have some solid lifters which seem to be the right size according to ebay m42 sizes.
I am not willing to pay 600 for a set of 16 solid lifters from supertech when I can get a set for half that price from europe and better quality too.

So if someone can give me the correct sizes in height and width that would help me heaps.
Also I am pretty sure that the m42 lifters used the same size as some other M5x or s5x engines?

M42/44 M50/52 S50/52 all had the same INA lifters and sizes. INA is the company that makes the lifters for Porsche, BMW, Mercedes Benz, Audi, Holden, Volkswagen, etc.
