hello everyone. Quick question and please don't bash me
94 gt with 96 explorer 5.0. 303 cam, high volume oil pump but stock internals. Comp cams valve springs, New lifters. Have a set of Proform roller rockers but noisey as hell. Beginning to think I have a pushrod length issue. Anyone else experience this. I did search it but nothing definitive . Thanks in advance.

Make sure each roller on the rocker is center of valve stem top
When it pushes down

that part of the equation I'm good on..lol. I assume with hydraulic lifters the measuring methods differ. I don't know so that's why I ask.

You can make a solid lifter, which is what you can use to measure. Then you can grab a measuring tool and use that to spec your pushrod length. The process is pretty easy. There are a number of youtube vids which will do a better job explaining it vs me typing it out.
