Valve train! Need some help

I have a 302 and there is a cam in it but don't know what kind. I'm about to buy the AFR 165 heads and comp cams roller rockers but my question is what pushrod length should I use? And what are some good lifters?

Stock lifters are fine to re-use. Pull the cam and look for markings, if not then buy a cam that you are comfortable with rather than using an unknown.

And yes, you HAVE to measure for proper pushrod length, there is NO other option and nobody will be able to tell you the right length except you and that tool.
