I ran the trick flow push rod when I was running this setup and all of it will be going back in the engine when I pull the heads and go back to the dove heads on my 460 when it goes in my 69 f100

Just kinda curious ... what type stock rockers did you have on CJ ALUMINUM heads...?

There are several types and early Cleveland rockers or Boss 302's were used quite a bit years ago...

I would use the FRPP offerings.

Crane gold or Ford Racing (same piece) for best, easiest geometry for the money IMO!
