Pushrod question

Hey guys,

I'm finishing up the valve train on my 498 stroker pump gas motor. I'm running a hyd roller and was curious if my pushrods are to big for my application. Trend Performance recommended 3/8's with .135 wall thickness. I'm curious if these will be too heavy for my application. My cam is only a .595 lift int/exh w/ 242/250. I'm running double springs I purchased from dart along with pro 1's. I'm worried that the extra weight of the .135 wall will be hard on the lifters and rockers. I'm beginning to think the sales person heard me say roller lifters and thought I was running a pro stock motor or something......lol

Thanks in advance

Re: Pushrod question

Them 3/8" Dia Push rods will be just fine with that .595 lift up to 6200rpm but I recommend you fine tune the guide plate adjustments to center the Rocker Tips on the Valve Stems with minimal lateral movement, use ARP Rocker Studs and quality Roller Rockers like Comp Pro Mags or Harland Sharp. 7/16" Studs and Rockers would be a Plus.

If your that concerned ISKY make an excellent 7/16" Chrome Moly Light Weight Push Rod.

Re: Pushrod question

Thanks for the info. I posted on a couple other forums and they all agreed.

Thanks again.
