Phil, no shop manual I assume, most engines require removing the valve cover, the rocker assy's, the pushrod, then remove the intake manifold to access the lifter, now that said some engines have enough room to get to the lifter with a magnet down through an opening in the head where the push rod comes thru, rare case though.
