Squeezable Tappets 2.4 Ti

I have 2 tappets which I can sqeeze by about 1mm between finger and thumb. All the rest seem solid in my hands.

I presume the 2 are faulty and need to be replaced? How would I prime some new tappets?

try opening the squeezable tappets, clean them and try again. Seems to work but haven't tried myself...

I'd try priming them by squeezing the empty tappet while submerged in oil
