28 Here’s the point where we ran into another hiccup: To minimize flex, we will be using 3/8-inch diameter pushrods rather than the more standard 5/16-inch diameter. The Comp guideplates are sized for the larger pushrods, but when testing for correct pushrod length we noticed that before the valve reached max lift the pushrod was hitting the inside of the guideplate. We’ll have to grind the plates to provide a little more clearance, but in the meantime we used some 5/16 pushrods of varying lengths to find the correct size and ordered up a correct set of 3/8 pushrods. We’ll get the valvetrain buttoned up next month. Stay tuned!
