Default Lifter Tick - TRUE FIX - F$%^ adding anything to the oil

so, i had this horrible clanking sound..i thought it was rod knock..rmeoved the engine...found it to be stock lifters (thank god i removed the engine tho..i reclearenced everything and found my bearings to bew the wrong size...bad oil pressure)
anyways, this is what it sounded after what i thought was the proper cleaning with primed lifters:

this is what it sounded after following this guide to clean the lifters
Cleaning Hydraulic Lash Adjusters (Hla's) - Tutorials & How To Guides - Mazda626 Forums
first crank:

and this is what it sounds now after going around the block and all lifters nicely self-primed.

even tho it took me about 4 hours plus 2 days chillin in a bath of acetone and mineral was wel worth the time.
my inj are now louder than my lifters
