Lifter noise

has anyone ever replaced a lifter in the engine, and is it doable at home?

I've rebuilt all of my lifters (not recommended) in my saturn and it wasn't that bad. As long as you have the right tools and replacement parts (cam cover gasket/grommet) it shouldn't be too hard and take 1/2 to 1 days if you take your time. If you are replacing your lifters completely I'd be very very wary about your old cam shaft lobes. Verify this with someone more technical but I feel new lifters on old cam lobes are at high risk of wearing the lobes down instantly or faster than normal, you may just want to rebuild your head all at once
