Fuel Pump Push Rod With Bronze Tip & Roller Billet Cam

Do I need a new bronze tip fuel pump push rod if running a billet roller cam in my Gen IV BBC, or can I use a standard rod?

I'm running a Holley high volume mech fuel pump.

thanks

Lee

It is agood idea from the stand point the bronze tip is sacrificial and any wear will occur on it instead of the lobe of your expensive cam.

A Crane rep I spoke to recently told me to use a bronze-tipped pushrod for their roller cams. This was for a small-block, but I would assume it would carry over to your big-block.
