we have bent 8 push rods. rocker arms and push rods were all stock. WE have a 519 to 529 lift cam. we put guide plates on but push rods looked to short. what do i need to do to stop this and make it work.

Is it a small basecircle cam?If so you will need longer pushrods,you can borrow a checker from a good machine shop,with that much lift you will need long slot rockers at a minimum and should really go with roller rockers IMHO

What valve springs do yo have? Did you check to make sure they dont coil bind with that lift?

Where are the pushrods bent.. in the middle or towards the end near the rocker?
