pushrods are cheap, why not just replace them?

in regard to the question, i doubt it will hurt anything

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.

Send a message via AIM to Mcdamit
you have to readjust valve lash anyway and please get new lifters if your flat tappet, hydraulic or solid. It not worth the risk
