broken ring land on top of one piston
And it had a weird vibe so it's coming apart
Nevermind, my eyes were playing tricks on me.  It's a dome. 

I'd go with a hydraulic roller if you aren't one to turn wrenches (you'll need to periodically check lash even if it doesn't need adjusting), don't want to turn higher rpm, and are going to put a lot of miles on it.

Solid could work and is cheaper since you already have the lifters (which I assume aren't beat to death).  I've run a solid roller on the street for a while.  But it was a weekend cruiser that saw the drag strip which I liked tinkering with.  I've also daily driven a solid flat tappet in a 289.  Not that big of a deal to me to set the valves every once in a while.
I don't mind wrenching  and saving money
the bored look great but if I get new pistons will it need doted to be fitted properly
I'm thinking it's  stock bore and not 030
Thanks again guys

It will definitely need to be honed for a new ring

I can't speak to the solid roller but I have ran a solid flat cam forever and the lash never changes.  However, my car is a weekend cruiser in the summer.  My main concern for a solid roller is will the lifters last on the street.

Would the springs need to be changed as well
Assuming that there is a pretty big spring in there for that solid roller

Honestly, it depends.

There are miles of differences in solid roller cams, as well as the springs used with them.

For example, the springs that come on most solid roller prepped heads are probably more than you would want to use with a Comp XE or Magnum street roller but too mild for an extremely aggressive drag race roller cam.
