they didn't... lol...simply were not avail back then...if in fact this engine has roller lifters and cam, then it will have a cam button behind the timing cover to keep the cam from walking... if indeed it has these...then it has been retrofitted at a later time.....factory rollers dont jave bars on the lifters...and dont use a cam button

If the OP's L79 did actually have roller lifters in it from 1965, the aftermarket is the only source for a roller cam and lifters. And at that they would not be easy to come by in 1965.

Re: 1965 1/2 C10 Pickup

There really isn't any shame acknowledging we may have forgotten something. But after we swear up and down, and stomp our feet; It sure takes a lot of humility.
But, still no shame.
'Hey, I could have sworn' .... isn't a rare expression.
