the length for these were very touchy to figure out so i cut one pushrod & put fuel line over it so i could adjust it to the right length for both the intake & exaust.
You using the little setup guage that comes with the T&D's ?

Yep,, based on your other thread, make sure you have the stands set up correctly before you try to figure pushrod length. Depending on valve length, you may need the heads or rocker stands machined (like the set of Brodix that I am currently setting up with T&D rockers)

PS,, clever thinking with the fuel line, since the actual geometry is determined by the rocker stands.

i did at the race shop on the counter & they said not to use it & set it up not shiming it!it looked better on the valve that way. i will take it back in to double check now that it is all together .

Paulie, what shop are you using? Take them to Dee Reily's and get them done right! Hope you have some inconel or super alloys for the exhaust.

thanks, is he a head guy or a motor guy ?
One stop shop, he's and old fart like me, ex boat racer, over the top fabricator. His son Cory runs the day to day operation. In house engine dyno etc. Do you have the correct length valves in those heads?
