Push rods are used on engines that do NOT have overhead cams. They are generally about 8-12 inches long, about 1/4" in diameter, and run from the cam lifters to the rockers (at the valves). There is one push rod for each valve. A V8 with 2 valves per cylinder will have 16 push rods.

Typically, you remove the valve cover, remove the rocker, and the push rod can be removed.

What is the push rod arraingment and what cylinders are 1-3-5,2-4-6


The intake pushrods and exhaust pushrods are different lengths. To distinguish the different pushrods, paint has been used, although this paint may be hard to identify after prolonged use. The intake pushrods are color-coded orange and are 6 in. (152mm) long. The exhaust pushrods are color-coded blue and are 63/8in. (162mm) long.

Here is a picture of the cylinder marking:

The pushrods were removed and not kept in order. where can i get a diagram?


Keeping the pushrods in order on an engine isn't because of certain ones being longer than others. Pushrods develop an unique wear pattern with the lifter, and if you change them around, they won't seal anymore, and won't carry oil to the top of the valve train. This will result in your valve guides wearing out prematurely, and causing excessive wear. If they haven't been kept in order, you should replace the lifters and pushrods.

You may be able to use them,there should be enough adjustment to make them work.FordMotorsports and Crane make a pushrod that is 8.640 which is what I used with those rockers.To check fit install 1 pushrod and 1 rocker on #1 cyl turn the engine over by hand 2 revolutions and then check and make sure the rocker tip is dead center on the valve,if it is you're good to go.

Push Rods


No, it's fairly easy, just remove the valve cover, unbolt the rocker arms, remove pushrods. Make sure you have correct parts and compare length of new ones to old ones. Too long of a pushrod and you could have major damage. Slide pushrods into lifters, you can look down through the head and see the lifter. You can also feel when the rod is in the lifter correctly. Install rockers in reverse trying to put back in exact location. I recommend torqing these, you'll have to find the spec. You could spin the engine with coil unhooked so it won't fire before you put the valvecover back on to make sure they're all moving the same. Install valve cover, etc, your done.
