Welcome to Allpar. I have read a source on the internet that claims that the pre-1988 flat tappets and cam can be upgraded to the 1988-on roller tappets and cam. I have never done it and can't vouch for the accuracy of this claim. Many parts suppliers still offer the old style flat tappet set-up.

Having wiped a cam lobe on a hydraulic-flat-tappet engine (a late seventies 360 in my case) wish that the engine had been roller. If a roller cam will install and run properly, you don't have to go so crazy with ZDDP additive or with diesel oil to keep that engine lubricated properly.

What killed the old cam?
