« on: November 02, 2021, 03:43:26 AM »
I was negligent in labeling, for different length pushrods. Which length goes on which side. Thanks guys

Strange, on my engine the push rods are the same length.

Thanks Veggie, yea, I "assumed" mine would have been also. One is 3/8 inch longer than the other.  :-\

The long one goes on the intake valve. Look at the lifters, the exhaust lifter is taller due to the compression release.

I put a zip-tie on the far side ( exhaust ) pushrod, makes it easier to see it spinning around.  And mine are not the same length either.

Yep, makes perfect sense. Thank you
