Re: Pushrods

If your engine is a stock 79 flat tappet 350 you can use a stock pushrod. 5/16 diameter, 7.794 length.

Re: Pushrods

Thanks YoungPup1977 , No it does not. Thanks Again.

Thanks B. W., That is good news, I should have checked this site before I ordered and paid for a set from Advance Auto. It would have been a lot cheaper going with Speedway. Speedway $19.99 , Advance $34.99. Thanks Again, John

Re: Pushrods

Stock pushrods for a 350 can be bought over the counter at any auto parts store.
