Make sure that crimp terminals going to the breaker are good. They can come loose on the wires and overheat. They dump heat into the breaker causing it to trip.

Well if it's for a millisecond, you'd probably wouldn't notice. At 2000 RPM, a cylinder is only firing every 26.5 or 33.5 milliseconds.

8 screws and you can pull the lifters. I take it that the head gaskets weren't blown. While you are at it go to lighter valve springs.
