Since all big block chevys use guide plates pushrods from CC should be hardened ,,USE an adjustable pushrod length checker to make sure you have right length, I used Comp cam ,lifters push rods valve springs.,roller rockers,timing chain and gears,,the pushrods were to short I had to order 125 th longer on intake and 250 th longer on exaust ,the ones that came with cam kit would not work the rubbed my guide plates had tp grind small amount with die grinder then reinstall until I got the clearance I needed,
