I think the W2 head requires a special offset rocker arm made just for those heads.

Pushrods are available in any length/diameter/hardness/ends,that you need,just get an adjustable measuring push rod and figure out exactly what you need,then order them from crane,they are very helpful and fast.

Did you change anything on the motor,lifters,cam,rockers,valves,springs,etc.,thes e can change pushrod requirements.

I changed cam,rockers,and lifters and had to go to longer pushrods as well as hardened and double walled with guide plates.
