Customer Question
When I took my...
When I took my evo moter apart I did not mark my push rods. I need info on push rod length and proper location. I do not have a color code on rods anymore to go by. I am really stuck. I was told that longer push rod goes on front cyl. exhaust and that both intakes are the same. I need to make sure before tighting any thing.
