    Hi guys,
    Due to a worn tip, I need to replace one of my pushrods. The concern I have now is that the rods I ordered are the "cut to length" style and look quite different to the ones I have in the motor already.

    Can I get away with just replacing the one 'stuffed' one ... or do I need to do all 8 in the new style?

    This is the 'stuffed' one

    Matched set will do it:D. Shape different but contact surface the same;). Where did the ovals come from?
    Cheers

    Matched to a pair @David H or a bank (all 4 for one head)?
    I ordered through Mick Motors but didn't really pay attention to the brand ... I can look tomorrow.
    Presumable the pushrod tubes don't care ... they are just a vessel to protect the rod?
