The bottom of the tappet, you mean the surface against the cam, right? Just make sure it looks nice and smooth?

FWIW, we can regrind them. However, it costs almost as much in shop labor to regrind used hydraulic lifters as to buy new. They must be disassembled, with all parts from the same lifter kept together, regrind the lifter, clean all the parts, reassemble the lifter, cycle it in oil with the lifter pliers.

If a customer wants his used lifters reground, we'll do the bottom and send them back to him for disassembly, cleaning, reassembly, no warranty expressed or implied.
