The answer is, buy an adjustable pushrod and start checking for correct length. That is all you can do. There are so many variables that change pushrod length.

You will probably need two different size adjustable pushrods. I couldn't find one that would cover both lengths. Also don't get the one with the nuts on them if you have valve guides.

Take your time and get it right. I am in the exact same stage you are. Experiment with the adjustable pushrod. Take notes as to what adjustments do to the pattern. After reading many posts and bothering Wolfplace on the phone, I have realized to take my time and get it right. Try to get a marker that is not permanent. I was using checking springs and they would barely make any marks on the valve stem. A non permanent marker works better.

Recently went through this. Spent ALOT of time with an adjustable PR looking for that perfect sweep and measuring lift at the same time.

In the end, I simply went with what gave the most lift not the pattern....YMMV
