The "D" jet system really hates hydros, as the events are somewhat delayed...

exploded lifters, and years of problems, as well as increased neglect from owners thinking their valve never need to be adjusted with hudros makes me dislike them. They also always have contact with the lobes and they wear like mad, atleast 40% faster than a solid lifter, inmmy experience... I go over the differences in my TIV engine rebuild video.

I would use a web 73 in that engine, and try to stay around 8:1 CR static according to your altitude and climate.
