    When I replaced the heads on my 350, I mixed up the pushrods by accident. I've been told that this will damage the rockers and lifters. Should I replace my pushrods? My engine seems to run fine and I've adjusted my valve lash with the engine running by loosening until I hear them clatter, then tightening half a turn. It seemed to work just fine. I just don't want to damage my engine. Thanks,

    Will

    You will be fine, it doesn't really matter if you mix them up or not. They do develope a wear pattern in the rocker arm and lifter plunger but it is so minimal that it doesn't matter.
