Started putting together the pieces to build an all aluminum 427" sbc.Just picked up an SB2 topend not here yet.When topend is here with block will need to know how to set up for correct pushrods.Cam, still have to dail that in will be a solid roller with offset lifters.Want to use 4" Callies Magnum crank,Oliver rods,Pistons not sure who to have cut them.Hopefully you that have played with SB2 stuff can give me suggestions.Mike Ross

Pushrods are the very last thing you want to measure and order. Get a GOOD adjustable pushrod kit to check with. You have to install a head with a gasket snugged down, cam and lifters installed, and rocker bar on it to check. Use a light spring to check with on the valves of one cylinder. After you are absolutely sure of your measurements and remember that if you are using Jesel you want the adjuster to be one turn out, you will order one exhaust and one intake pushrod. These will be your spares, and will allow you to run a final test once the short block is completely assembled and the heads are on. You can then use the pushrods you have to confirm the length and order or make adjustments as needed.

Thanks Mark,assumed that very thing,the rockers must have adjustment is there a starting point to set them at before measuring for pushrods?Would you share any info on a cam,your preference.Looking for big hp number,with good off idle throttle response.
Who makes the shortest intake manifold? This bike has very limited space when it comes to height,plan to raise the tank maybe even mill the carb gasket surface down.
Once the topend shows up may have more questions, already know will need gaskets head,intake,exhaust,and valve covers.
