    I managed to find some 5/16" pushrods that are .115" wall tubing and stock length worked for me. And I set mine the same as Biker at 1/2 turn past zero. Hopefully tomorrow I'll have a better idling engine after I did some carb repairs today.

    Make sure you have enough spring pressure when twisting the engine 6500, don't want all the extra weight with a hyd roller lifter floating the valves at high RPM, nasty thinks happen real quick.
