For the SBC engine, there are "off the shelf" pushrods in any length you might need. They come in 0.050" increments.

Here is a snapshot of my number one cylinder (@ TDC) exhaust roller rocker,
taken today.
My block is a stock roller cam block, the heads are Brodix IK200, head gasket
Clevite, CLE-5746, compressed height 0.026.
The pushrod is stock length and you can see the roller tip is just inboard of the valve stem centerline.
Maybe I was just lucky but stock length seems a good place to start.



Wezz The stock pushrod is way to short I can push the pushrod realy up and down. Like u see in the picture i post earlier in the topic

Have you adjusted it correctly ?

Pushrod and timing chain

And how tight needs the timing chain to be?

Is it new, if yes....tight, no slack.

You are not going to get any further until you get a stock pushrod
to get started, at least to see where you are.
I think you were told earlier a roller pushrod is not going to be right.
The other way is to buy an adjustable pushrod which will find the right length for you to use.
Then go to SummitRacing and look for a set of pushrods of that length.
Pushrod search at Summit.

At 10:00 he shows "tightness" of the chain.
Is yours the same ?

Watch the video I posted, the man checks the tightness or slack whatever you want to call it.
See what he does then do the same to yours.
