I'll say it so there is a chance you could still change the cam & lifters in time. The place you ordered the parts from clearly aren't experts on the BBF. I believe the issue is the lifters are taller and it puts the pushrod at a goofy angle. Will it run? Yes. Is it the way it should be for the kind of engine you want to build? No. Lots of guys have gone before you and learned this lesson with broken valve train parts the hard way. CrittersF1 & Whitelightning know what they are talking about. I'd go with plan B if there is still time.
