Pumped Up Pushrods
To give more reliability and improved performance to stock fuel-pump pushrods, ARP has developed its own pushrods. They are made from premium-grade aerospace chrome-moly and are centerless-ground to a precise diameter. A hollow core serves to reduce reciprocating mass, so it requires less energy to operate. ARP offers fuel-pump pushrod kits for small- and big-block Chevys. Contact Automotive Racing Parts, Dept. CT09, 531 Spectrum Cir., Oxnard, CA 93030; (800) 826-3045; www.arp-bolts.com.
