Lifters are not radiused on the face. They are TAPERED.

Aside from that, the fake lifters can be refaced properly and the screws can be re-machined so they stay put, BUT, do you want to take a chance on the material they are made from?
No one seems to know what that is. Is it virgin cast iron that has the face only induction hardened, or are they made from old melted down cast iron sewer pipe and old sash weights????

If you absolutely have to have adjustable lifters, go with the heavy USA made ones. They are fine for stock and mild street engines.
