will these pushrods work with SE tappets 18572-13, and do you need to remove rocker box covers to remove stock pushrods

Asked by: exhaust123
Yes they will work with SE lifters but you need to know what the pre-load is and then with 24tpi on these pushrods go the required turns. 1.000 divided by tpi (24) equals .042" per turn. Stock is around .125" and performance is usually around .140-.150". So 3 turns is .126 and 3.5 is .147" from zero lash. Make sure you install the int and ex pushrods into their respective positions. To remove the stock non-adjustable simply cut them with a bolt cutter.

Can you use this pushrod set with stock cams?

Asked by: cj65
This pushrod kit will work with your stock cams but everything else has to stay stock too. Especially the tappets, see statement below. ***Solid tappets must not be used with the stock camshaft. Severe engine damage may result.***

at what mileage do I adjust pushrods?

my 2011 Trike has adjustable pushrods
Asked by: Lunkerland
Xls and Twin Cams aren't required to adjust push rods, only VRods at 12,500 miles. Hope this helps!
