I found this link on Lifter Rebuilding. He talks about "linishing" the top of the shim with P240 wet sand paper on a super flat surface. To me this would remove the "record pattern" the cam put on the top of the lifter shim.

" You will now need to linish the tops of each tappet, this can be done by using P240 wet/dry paper using WD40 as a lubricant, put the paper on a flat surface (a machined pieces of steel or a small sheet of glass) and then rub the base of the follower is a circular motion over the paper, make sure you turn the follower regularly as you linish, keep going until there are no scuff makers present."

i think i've got 1 or 2 head's worth of used lifters from a 928S3 engine.
some have dark circle wear marks, some look fresh.
you can have em all for $2 apiece + shipping. (have to count how many i have for a total).

Thanks for the offer, but I have 32 nice ones to choose from. Still trying to decide if my cam is good and if I can refurbish the lifer to re-wear with the cam. I am looking for it in the WSM to measure the cam lob. I am learning a lot. Thanks to all for the advise and expertise!
