Talked to our best local engine guru this week and he looked in his records and my application will most likely need 7.300 pushrods but he also highly recommended doing a little testing with an adjustable push rod. My son in-law Jamey will be here tomorrow and I should know what I need very soon. He is bringing an adjustable rod

Jamey came up today and we have gotten the pushrods figured out that they need to be 7.266" long which means the Comp Cams 7609-16 are going to work. I did take our adjustable pushrod into my local guru and he measured and he got a 7.275 on his caliper and recommended I go with the above. So a trip to Jegs or Summit is probably in the works for tomrrow

Jegs did not have the pushrods in stock Summit did but decided against a four hour  drive for $100 worth of parts so they are being shipped

It is coming together slowly but surely. All of the holes for the temp gauges and headers are a different size so many trips to the hardware store is slowing me as i get frustrated and then discouraged so keep taking breaks lol.

Looking good Larry, me thinks you're doing a great job. Don't be breaking any knuckles, when we bleed, we bleed together😊gallery_1763_8_1413157507_2589.jpg
