what is the advantage of putting ford lifters in a small block chevy?

ford lifters have a larger O.D. a larger cam profile can be used with a ford lifter and it will be less likely to knock down lobes.

the biggest reason engine builders bore chevrolets out to the ford O.D. is because chevrolet blocks are notorious for having the lifters bores out of alignment. bad tooling from the factory or core shift is likely the cause. flat cam lobes and cam walk is the result if left unchecked.
