Pushrod Length Checker ?

Trick flow has several sizes that are offered from Summit. My block has been deck very close to .000-003 deck height. I thought by decking the block I would need a shorter pushrod, plus I got the upgrade valves that is .100 longer. So which length push rod checker will be right with all these variables I have?

Which pushrod length checker should I use?
Trick Flow Specialties
TFS-9000 6.125 in. to 7.500 in. long, 5/16 in.,
TFS-9001 7.500 in. to 8.700 in. long, 5/16 in.,
TFS-9002 8.700 in. to 9.800 in. long, 5/16 in.
TFS-9003 9.700 in. to 11.000 in. long,5/16 in.
TFS-9004 10.200 in. to 11.500 in. long, 5/16 in.

Hard to say without knowing what engine you are working with. You can make your own by taking a push rod from your motor, cutting about 3/4 inches out of one end about 4/5ths of the way up, threading the long and short pieces and run a stud in with nuts to make it lock in place. Now you have your very own that will work as good as any you buy. Now you just need a good mic to measure your checker after it has been adjusted to the correct length.

SBC. If you do not want to make your own. then call Summit and tell them what motor/cam/rocker configuration and let them send you the right pushrod checker tool. I looked in my catalogue and did not find one listed, but they have them.
