sbc factory hyd. roller motor

When changing heads on a hyd. roller short block for example TBI heads to dart iron eagle or TBI to Vortec does pushrod length change? I do realize that Vortec use self align rockers as opposed to guide plates on dart heads I,m stumped on pushrod mysteries

i agree. its easy to do with an adjustable push rod length checker, makes it 100% easier and is accurate.

Too many variables. Cam specs, deck height, valve length, cylinder head construction, cylinder head milling, angle milling, not to mention many times different rocker arms require different length push rods as do lifters with different pushrod cup height locations. Always verify correct pushrod length.
