custom pushrods

I sent my gx120 Honda pushrods to smith brothers to have a new set made but got turned down. Does anybody know of a company that will make em for a small engine?

If you can use 5/16" OD p-rods, you can get them custom from several makers. Manton (page 7) should be able to fix you up, they have them down to 3/16".

I was curious so I looked around some. Seems they're available 0.100" shorter like for different rockers or heavily milled head from NR RACING.

The. 100 shorter are my last resort. It will raise my compression up to around 13.5 but I will try the others. Thanks

I wouldn't mill just to use a shorter p-rod. Now I'm curious. Why are different length p-rods needed in the first place, if I can ask?
