    How do you get the actual measurement, do you have to use a big caliper or something?

    There is a tool out there that is basically a two piece pushrod the is threaded witha jam nut. To figure the correct length, you unscrew the tool until it is seated in the lifter and touching the checker tool. Then you tighten the jam nut and remove it. Measure it and that is the pushrod length you need.

    In my case, I used a set of feeler gauges to find the distance between my pushrod and the checker tool. I added that distance to the current puhrod length to determine the correct length that I required. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    Comp Cams makes a set Part # 7900
    I think the tool company "tavia" actually makes them. Jegs used to carry alot of their tools.
