If your building a custom valvetrain setup you might consider purchasing the Comp Cams adjustable pushrod measuring tool. At only about $20 it's a perfect tool for making sure you get exactly the right pushrod length for your application.
A large number of variables are involved in determining the correct length
pushrod for your application. Pushrod length is affected by any of the
- Block deck height
- Head deck height
- Head stud boss height
- Rocker arm brand/design
- Cam base circle size
- Lifter design/brand/pushrod seat height
- Valve stem length
Don't assume anything when determining the right
pushrod for your new engine. A pushrod that fits one engine may not necessarily
work in another. Any number of items can be different on your engine, requiring
you to use a different pushrod length.
