V8 Push rod question

Putting my motor back together today and had a question.

Does it matter which way the push rods go in. We can't recall how we took them out.

It does not appear that it matters as both the rocker and the lifter appear to be the same but just wanted to make sure.



Thanks!

Ideally they should go back where they started. I would just reinstall since that is your only option. Make sure none are bent.

We know which cylinder they are for just did not mark orientation.

Yes none are bent all is good there.

Thanks

I don't know about Rovers, but in GMs the wear mark is a bit different between lifter and rocker sides.

The only two times I did this job, I poked them all through a shoebox lid.
Kept them all in order and top/bottom.
I'd guess if you can't see a difference in wear then it ain't gonna matter.

It doesn't matter. Think of all of the head gasket jobs that have been done on Rover V8's over the years, and how many had the push rods put back in the correct spots. It would be well documented if it was a real concern.

Just so you know, the Rover V8 was a GM V8 until bought by Rover.

Cool. Thanks for the help. That is what I assumed but just wanted to make sure.

Almost back together just a little more tomorrow and hopefully all is good.
