the lift broke, and the broken peice got caught in the worst place possible which caused the cam gear bolt to break. what would cause the lift to fail?? i have crower valve springs.

Lifter as in bucket/tappet?

I would guess either clearance issue or spring pressure issue. Off chance it could be just an outright part failure, but I'm doubting that. Also could be oiling issue, lifter got no oil, grew and seized in the head.
