The pushrod is likely one of the most important pieces of the valve train. Pushrods not only should be strong enough not to fail, bend or burn up at the ends, they will have to also match the frequency of all of the rest of the parts in the valve train, in addition to the RPM at which the engine will be run. Hi-Tech Pushrods feature a one-piece design from 0.080 inch wall, seamless chromemoly tubing that ensures the ultimate in strength and durability. Ends are precision formed, yielding added thickness and strength in the critical tip area, even as maintaining constant wall thickness and concentricity. The pushrods are then heat treated for maximum strength to make sure compatibility with guide plates. They’re OD ground for consistency and black oxide finished with length and part number laser etched at the OD for ease of identification.
