    calling and asking is probably the easiest and safest method of finding out

    Did you upgrade the valve springs ? You should have good valve to piston clearance. Sounds like the valves hit the pistons for some reason.

    Explain the thread title please.


    Length depends on a few things. Stock heads? Stock lifters? What has been changed?
    Measure....twice. Adjustable pushrod length checkers are cheap.

    Seriously dude WTF? Please explain your title. How can you put a cam into a car and not know what kinda rods/springs you need?

    this should be a two step process

    1. call and see what the manufacturer recommends
    2. get a pushrod length checker and check

    if the rods are bend..chances are they aren't the hardened ones..which sounds like you are running stock pushrods ?


    as too why you kissed the valve ..well pushrod length will play a huge role...if the rods are a correct length..then more than likely your timing is off /not aligned correctly.
