Pushrods: How straight is straight?
 
I rolled my pushrods across the kitchen counter and they seemed pretty straight. However, under some of them I could see a hair's width of daylight. Is this straight enough?

Could be low spots on the counter, could be a rod just slightly slightly bent, shouldn't hurt you. If you're at all worried, replace it, they aren't that expensive.

roll em on a piece of glass

I think SAATR is right. They're probably slightly, but insignificantly bent.

I tried rolling them on glass anyway and they all rolled. Is that the result one looks for? If they can't roll then they too bent?

No more than push rods cost, if they re not perfectly straight I would replace them. I just don't think it is worth the risk.
