Tech / General EngineIs your car making a strange sound or won't start? Thinking of adding power with a new combination? Need other technical information or engine specific advice? Don't see another board for your problem? Post it here!
what if you dont put the pushrods back in the same place?
I never do. SBC pushrods are all the same length and you re-adjust them anyway. If they're worn enough to cause a problem in the lifters then you should have changed them. My BBC pushrods are 2 different lengths. Intake and exhaust length are different because of the way the valves are arranged. I pull all the pushrods and put them in a pile. Only the lifters if they're flat tappet need to be kept in order. Roller lifters don't wear in like a flat tappet so they can be mixed around.
All my spark plugs are indexed so they go back in the same holes also.
