    I bought a kit and a few other things that were not includedin the kit from Summit for a 289 last winter. It was the best price and everything was in stock. Plus they have techs to ask questions to if needed and to verify that you're getting what you need.
    Did by chance you look at Rock Auto? You never know what you might find there.

    Do these qualify as "hardened"? Mr. Curtis recommends my pushrods be hardened.

    Also finding some conflicting info on length. They say they are 6.25 on LMR (as well as in the reviews on Summit), but for the regular listing on Summit, it says they are 6.272. Further confusing is LMR says they are "stock length", so what IS stock length? 6.25? Because if it's 6.272, a number of other manufacturers also make pushrods that length. And Summit does NOT categorize pushrods by application AT ALL as far as I can tell for some reason.

    It doesn't appear that if i go to the Scorpion rockers, I will need to measure for pushrods.

    If you are having your heads milled and changing to stud mount rockers, your best option is going to be to measure pushrod length for your combination and buy according to that rather than hope the standard pushrods are the correct length. Once you start milling heads, decking blocks, and changing the rocker arm geometry on a Ford the whole pushrod length changes. You want to have the correct overall length to make sure the roller rockers are positioned correctly over the top of the valve, otherwise you can cause excessive wear and actually cause damage.

    This will do what you need and the price is really good too. https://www.alexsparts.com/6-00-7-00...gt40p-gt40-e7/

    Actually I was thinking of going pedestal mount, but nonetheless. If I'm going to measure I guess I need a solid lifter anyway, so the LMR kit makes sense.
