Default Pushrod length

hey guys, ive heard alot of beef about getting the right pushrod length, and i figure, someones going to be using a similar combo

can anyone give me an approximate pushrod length for a Ford E cam, with Oem style roller rockers, AFR 165cc stud mount heads with 3/8 inch stud mound roller rockers, 1.6 ratio

thanks, im just looking at my future H/C/I combo

You won't know until you measure it. If the block has ever been decked, or the deck height is off slightly from factory spec, or depending on the head gasket you use, what cam bearings and on and on. 2 identical engines may need different pushrod lengths.
Who cares how much horsepower it has, all that matters is how fast it goes!

Untested 331, lots of suspension, chewing up corners.
