When I built my last 2 engines, the shop I used loaned me this simple little tool. Worked great. You will either have a gap at the stem (like mine) or a gap at the pushrod. Just add/subtract the measurements and you are good to order up the rods.

You can also buy an adjustable pushrod but it will take some time getting the geometry right by trial and error before coming to the correct length.
