Re: valvetrain

Get hold of an adjustable pushrod , put in motor adjust to desired position take back out & measure or take to any decent performace shop to get some made up. Bit more expensive but saves on valve guide wear.

Re: valvetrain

STOP don't go any further!!!!!!

Piss those pushrods off and get dome hardened pushrods before you put steel fileing through engine...THe std pushrods are not designed to run against guide plates as you have stud mount rockers....
Get correct length pushrods...
