Re: Engine Rebuilt

Yeah, but, doesn't the push rod length determine the preload. In all the videos I watched they adjusted the adjustable rods to get it just right, then ordered rods at varying lengths that were always longer, and that was what the preload was. One guy ordered them .070" over to get .070" of preload.

What's my magical preload number? Maybe I need to call the CompCams pros since they're supplying their lifters. I'm just curious what is expected for a 4.0. That might be what they tell me to reference and I haven't been able to ascertain that from searching ... yet.
