What is a rule of thumb for replacing lifters? I have the engine down to replace bearings and seals.

If you're replacing the camshaft or having it reground, replace the lifters.

If the cam lobes and lifters all look good, no need to replace the lifters.

To check the lifter take a straight edge and lay it across the bottom of the lifter where it rides on the cam lobe. Check to see if it is dished out from contact with the lobe on the cam.
You cam do this with a feeler gauge or if it is bad you can hold it up to a light and see a gap under the straight edge. If it shows a gap you may need to look at the cam lobe for wear also.
