    Hello all,

    OK, I know someone out here has the answer for my stupidity. /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif I have a 427 BBC and I have been rebuilding it for awhile now. I stopped last fall because of winter, plus becaue I couldn't afford new push rods at the time. Now quite a few months later, I have the time plus I have the new push rods to install into my BBC. Only problem is, I forgot which length (long or short) is for the exhaust and intake side.

    Any ideas before I install them into the wrong slot and bend a rod? /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    Thanks,
    Scott

    My 454 would only go together one way. The short rod was way too short for the long side. I do think the previous post was correct and the intake uses the long rod.
