Used Parts Question


I'm putting a .60 over 45 back together - I bought it running in a 1 ton pickup.

I bought it 3 or so years ago - it ran like a top. In fact, when I pulled the engine & cleaned it up, I found that it had been professionally rebuilt.

When I pulled the valve train apart, I placed the pushrods, rocker arms, raocker balls & nuts together in a ziplock bag. I planned on using new parts when I put everything back together.

No I want to go "budget" on this engine, as I'm building a true LS-7 454 atthe same time.

Can I re-use the pushrods, rocker arms, rocker balls & nutseven though I did not keep them "matched", or am I screwed?

I'm running a Summit Racing 1302 cam & lifters (new) with flat top stock pistons

Thanks for the help!
