Still having lifter issues! I think I have a blockage!

Tell me the background. Did you check the oil pressure manually? What was the pressure?
If all is checked and good and no oil to lifters, you may have a bad or spun cam bearing not allowing oil to the top

Engine rebuilt about 4000 miles ago then lifters al of the sudden started chattering and I found 5 of the six on the odd side of the engine collapsed so I changed all of the lifters now they do not chatter as bad!

Oil pressure is 54 at idle

Is there oil getting to the top of the motor?

I just pulled the even side and ran the engine I'm not getting oil up the pushrods!

I found fragments of what looks like RTV gasket sealer on the rocker arms! What I found was very small

I miss typed the odd side 1, 3, 5 are not getting oil to the rocker arms and the even side along the fire wall 2, 4, 6 has plenty of oil! Also all the rocker arms on the odd side can be pushed towards the lifters and the even side an not!

I think we discussed this before. Either a cam bearing is installed wrong or too much rtv was used and has clogged the galley in the block
