Lifter noise after backfire.

Drove my car to work today and when i went to lunch she just up and stopped running. It didn't take but just a couple of minutes to find the problem and it was the the wire that goes to the condenser.  The car backfired while coasting over to the shoulder of the road, i guess the condenser wire made contact for just a second.I replaced the condenser and points and when i started the engine the lifters were making a lot of noise and has a miss to it now,I pulled the pushrods thinking it may have…See More

Basically I’m trying to feel out if he’s putting gravy on the labor.

Although the radiator was not leaking, nor was the car running hot, I tool out the radiator today to have it boiled out and rodded out. Then I changed the oil and filter (filter is very easy to reach with the radiator out), then the thermostat got changed. 

I'll have the radiator back from the shop on Monday, and will reinstall it then.

The front lower ends are gone but what's there looks to be in decent condition and a fair price in today's market. I have no connection, just passing it along in case it might work for someone.
