Solid lifter for the 300? From a 302 or a 429?

With the refresh of my motor I'm switching to a flat tappet solid cam and need bing to know what lifters to order.

Thank in advance for the Input

This is the lifter, these numbers interchange (and yes, they fit 302,429 and many other Ford engines) two I’ve listed have the .015” oiling hole in the lifter face and I’d recommend it.

The cam is using the Erson F320/.355 lobe which will give you .586" valve lift with .017" lash if it is being used with 1.7 ratio BBC roller rockers.
Are you using the SBC 4.911" long valves to accommodate that much valve travel?

I'm curious.
If I'm reading this correctly the cam has 284* .050" duration on a tight LSA with at least 68* of overlap. (108 LSA, 104 ICL)
If so that is strictly a drag racing cam.
Is that what you are doing?

I was thinking that's a lot of cam and lift, then I read the OP's signature line...

I read the signature line also.
The Clifford cam has a 232/232 .050" duration with a couple of 38/38 webbers.
A 284* cam is a big jump.
