Cool Chipped exhaust push rod tip

I replaced my valve seals and in the process discovered a chipped tip on No. 7 exhaust push rod. The motor is a stock 1970 sbc 307 c.i. I have purchased a new replacement push rod but it is about 1/32" - 1/16" longer than the old one. Will that cause any problems? Thanks for the advice.

well hey, howz things in BH? i just posted something about BH for the first time since i joined up. i went to BHHS in 69-71. if you went there then and might know me pm me. you can adjust the pushrod so that it depresses the plunger inside the lifter varying amounts, so i can see where you might just give that rocker arm an extra half a turn or something to even it out. but, i am not any kind of an engine builder so dont take my word for it!!! didnt know anyone in BH drove anything made in this country other than caddies and lincolns!

My BH is in Michigan. Is that where you are thinking? Thanks for the advice. I guess what I can do is install it, and do a compression check to see if it compared with the other cylinders. At least I will know if the valve is closing all the way. I just don't want to be jambin the valve into the piston.

Like bullheimer said the lock nut will be turned back a little more, nothing should be hurt. Were you at the Woodward cruise?

Thanks 1bad80 for the vote of confidence. I have been to every Woodward Cruise since the event started. I cut my teeth on Gratiot though. I now am now close enough to Woodward that I can walk there in 15 minutes. Got my 37 Ply Sept 01, so now I cruise in the rod instead of the daily driver.
