Need to know if i can re-use the stock pushrods, or what is a good replacement for the cam and springs I'm runnin. I would like to stay with 5/16" if possible so I could re-use the stock guideplates, but you guys let me know what you think. Also, what are the lengths of the stock 454 gen V pushrods? I'm getting different answers all over the place and even after measuring mine with calipers I'm not getting the answers I'm reading on the internet.
My motor is a Gen V, stock block(.030 over), stock iron peanut port heads, open chamber (118cc's) stock valves, .040 thick fel-pro head gasket, stock non-adjustable rockers & guide plates. No block decking/head shaving has been done.
This is the cam I am running:
11-236-4 - Xtreme Marine
These are the valve springs I'm running:
COMP Cams: Dual Valve Springs: 1.509" O.D. Outer, .697" I.D. Inner
