Pushrod length

I've got a 1989 LX 5.0 that needs valve guide seals. I'm replacing the lifters and pushrods since this is an original motor with 160,000 miles on it. All i need to know is what are the pushrod lengths?

Re: Pushrod length

the only person that can answer your question is you... buy TWO adjustable pushrods convert one of your old lifters into a solid unit and measure after your heads have been finished off.

follow this guide, trust me its worth the effort.

oh and one last note, when you do this... having a narrow swipe is better than being dead center, wide swipes kill cams and ruin valveguides prematurely.

GOOD LUCK and Let us Know.
