Swapping gears is a trick. Even with a drill press I had a heck of a time drilling with that tiny drill bit.
If I had to do it again, I'd get my measurement and then take it to a good machine shop.
BTW the steel gear ("yellow stripe") you buy from Ford doesn't have any holes for hte pin.
You can find out about which vehicles came with a roller cam by looking up lifters for specific vehicles and motors in online catalogue's like O'Reilly auto parts, AutoZone, Rock Auto, etc.
