Default Wtf. Pushrods.

I think this dude worked at Kentucky fried chicken rather than cran and holley. Just wanted to share some things not to do. I see poor valvetrain and excessive guide wear.

For some reason the link wouldn't post but can google otherwise looks like phragle found it. More Power Through Improved Rocker Arm Geometry

wtf, I didnt even waste time watching the whole thing. one-ratio has to do with length of one side of the pivot to the other. 1.5 is 1.5 even if you put a two foot pushrod in it. second-he was not taking the lift at the valve, he was on the rocker somewhere. third- the only way I could see the length changing the lift is if you are so far off on the length that you are way up or way down in the arc of the rocker which would really screw things up if you spin it more than 1500 rpm. on the other hand I wish I could just by a few pushrods rather than $400 cams.

Goes against everything. We could go on about all the cons but I'd rather punch the guy and spray paint looser on his white suit. Lol...

He did say he's using a stock stamped steel rocker, the larger pad verses a roller my be how he gets away with it.
