pushrod question

Post  7LBRONCO on April 19th 2014, 11:31 pm

I am swapping heads on my all OE 70 429. Going from D0VE heads to D3 heads, off a D1VE block cast in 73. I have the pushrods for both motors, but don't know which ones to use. I am assuming the rods for the D0VE motor, due to difference in deck heights between the 2 block.

If you have "guideplates" be sure to use the correct length hardened ones.

Otherwise use whichever ones fit the best.

If you are installing bone-stock D3VE heads/rockers onto a bone stock D0VE shortblock, then you should use the pushrods from the D3VE engine.  It would also be a good idea to pedestal shims in front of you when you do this....but it probably won't be mandatory to use them.
