Yes dutch, it will be a very long runner manifold.
I popped the head on and measured for pushrod length. Since the rocker arms are not adjustable the way to get the preload correct is to use proper length pushrods. I have a reground cam and about .040" was milled off the block so the stock pushrods are too long.

A call to Smith Brothers in Bend, Oregon along with my credit card number remedied the situation. Custom length pushrods should be here in a couple days. I recommend Smith Brothers for their quality and quick service. You pay for it though.

I have used Smith Brothers. High quality and very knowledgeable. They can build most anything you can dream up.

Default Back at it.

Now that the dragster trailer is done I have returned to the Crosley. Slowly putting the Jeep engine together. The head in on. Somehow I screwed up the pushrod length. My Smith Brothers pushrods are too short. The stock ones seem about right so I put them in along with the rocker arms.

Here's what's left of the original dragster trailer. Ready to make its last trip. to the scrap yard.

Thank you, oh quiet one. Nice to hear from you.

I am aware of the rockers but was thinking Phase II of the build. If the present set up seems wrong, I'd be better off getting the rockers rather than another set of custom made push rods.

Slowly getting her all together. I've arranged everything so the car can be run without the body. Could even make a flip up body if I want to. Picked up this 350 trans for fiddy bucks and an Edelbrock carb for free for a future project.
