All older GM engines with solid lifters had a simple procedure. Take the rockers to zero lash on push rods, then 1/2 turn past that, and you are done. Just be sure you have the cam in the right position to set each rocker correctly

87 dodge d150 225 6 fuel pump was not getting gas changed it still no gas

I don't know about 225 six,but a 5.2 318 v8 ,and 5.9 360v8, and some other older modle Dodges, as well as some GM engines, have a ROD that rides on the camshaft
this rod needs to be pushed up into block out of the way, and held there (I usually use greese to hold the rod in place )
then the fule pump can be installed , if the rod isn't above the pump lever, the pump will not only not work, but can also become damaged
The rod works like a push rod on the pump lever
hope this helps

Sequence for the push rods for the intake & exhaust on a 2001 Grand Am GT there are 3 long ones & 3 short ones, While replacing the intake manifold gaskets, I forgot where they go!!!!

The valves that are furthest from the intake, on the outside perimeter of the head, closest to the spark plugs are small diameter valves. These valves use the short rods. The valves that are [non-uniformly] on the interior of the head use the large diameter valves. These valves use the long push rods. This is not due to the diameter, but do to the proximity of the valve on the head with respect to the rod length required to push it. So, looking at a picture of the "front head," closest to the front of the car, from underneath will verify that diameters are small - large - large - small - large - small. Inspecting from above you should note the order of valves as outside - interior - interior - outside - interior - outside. And if you invert that same head to the "rear head" configuration (180o) it would become small - large - small - large - large - small (outside - interior - outside - interior - interior - outside).

The answer is this:
The rear head (2-4-6) will have push-rods in the following configuration:
short - long - short - long - long - short

The front head (1-3-5) will have push-rods in the following configuration:
short - long - long - short - long - short
