    Hi all, just confirming that my 88 Ram 250's TBI 318 has roller
    lifters as there's less zinc etc in motor oil these days?

    The 318 went roller sometime around 85, your 88 should have a roller
    cam. But even if it doesn't, modern oils are just fine for such a mild
    low-lift cam with soft valvesprings. The zinc scare is somewhat
    overblown- its only a real problem with huge muscle-car cams that
    require concentric valve springs with astronomical spring pressures.
