You need some adjustable pushrods to check your valve train geometry to tell you what length of pushrods you need.

Shorter pushrods are for a smaller base circle cam,you need to see if you have one,if not and you use the shorter pushrods you're geometry will be off and you will break stuff,just borrow a length checker,it's basicly a plastic rocker,if when it's installed you have space under the spring side you need shorter pushrods,if under the pushrod side you need longer.
