That is usually a sign that the valves on those lifters were stuck. Enough hydraulic pressure developed inside the lifter when the engine was turned over that the barrels have have expanded and are now stuck inside the tappet. Grab the barrel of the lifter violently with a pair of vice grips so as to crush it inward, yank it out of the tappet and discard. It was not any more good anyway. Lo siento mucho.
