Default Heads/Cam/RR/Pushrod Question..

Hi folks, got a simple question that seems to get me nowhere with a search...

Wondering what Pushrod length to use with and Ecam, GT40X (58cc) heads, and 1.7 Crane Cobra Rockers.... would the stock 6.272 length work as it did with the ported E7's or would i need to perform the pushrod length measuring fiasco?

Thanks,

Shot

It's really not too much to handle honestly. I learned how to do it by watching a couple of videos on youtube and bought my checker off Summit. Make sure you buy a Comp Cams checker with the hash marks so you can just count your rotations instead of having to use a caliper. Then you can buy the correct length you need off Summit. They have just about any length you can imagine.
