Pushrod length....

Greetings all, my first post for a long time.....

This may be covered somewhere, but I haven't found it.

To paint the basic picture, I am in the throws of having a 179HP bored to 192, going to run a Wade 446 solid lifter cam, YT head with rollers.

Is it correct that running solids requires a shorter pushrod? In this case 9" rods instead of the standard 9.13" (?) for hydraulics?

Appreciate any info.....

Cheers.

Not the Kingswood!

Just been informed by the Minister of Entertainment (the wife) that Kingswood Country is being repeated this week on Channel 72, Wednesday to Friday. And not at 4am either. 6pm! All the young kids today should check it out.

I have only just got my ute on the road again after abour 3 months of sitting in the driveway.
I can hear a very odd clickin almost grinding sound very intermittently. coming from the front end of the car. i have no idea what it might be.. im thinking maybe wheel bearing is going and hoping it isnt the gear box about to die..
Any insights so help me diagnose and solve?
