Push rod length?

Hey guys!

I'm in the final stages of a mild build/refresh for my 4.0.

Aside from a stock bottom end, I have:

410 comp cam
98tm heads (Alabama) -205$ build from AL, single valve springs, etc
Sealed Power rockers ordered..

My question is push rod length.

From researching this site it looks like the length I'm looking for is 5.550" because I'm using the stock style rockers, correct?

I'm going to order from Smith Brothers Push rods, and there's a few questions they ask that I'm not sure of.

Length= 5.550", (Over all)
No guide plates
No oil holes in ends
Tube diameter= 5/16" straight wall cromo?
ball ends both ends

Am I missing anything?


Thanks everyone! The amount of information on this site is astounding.

Benjam :D

lol i missed seeing 75. i still have mine, its just not in the window. i saved it in the console.

i hit 75 in the diesel today too, catching up to my friend from behind and slow truck. kicked down from od to 3rd/4th(whatever it goes to) and smoked out the entire 264, all i saw was everybodys headlights on showing through a thick black fog(it was daylight when it happened, so they all turned their lights on cause of me) lol




anyway, his engine is an example of a ratard building a v6 like its a nascar engine lol
done well tho. needs to be a bit louder exhaust wise still
i laughed and felt like an ####### at the same time lol
