Hi guys. I had the valves done in the heads of my 67 390, with non-adjustable rockers, and after starting it there's now some lifter noise. Unfortunately I didn't think to mark the push rods when I pulled them and after reading a few other posts, it sounds like they are most likely different lengths.

I figure I will have to take the push rods out, measure them, and try to match them with the proper arm. Does anyone have any experience with this and can you offer any insight or suggestions?

Any help is much appreciated.
