So she can use her stock length push rods then correct ?
On a rebuild involving machine work and an aftermarket cam, it's highly doubtful.
I know, man, the stuff adds up. I wouldn't skimp on this, though. It might take some time to get the tool and another week or so to get the right pushrods but that's all part of the game. Get it done right the first time and you can move on and sleep at night.
My last 383 went together no less than 5 times before the final assembly. That's just how it goes if you want it done right. It does suck though. I was so damn burned out that I wasn't really even excited about the final assembly.
That's why they say there's a big difference in being an engine assembler and an engine builder.
My honest advise is to get the tool, measure it correctly and get the right parts in the engine, for whatever that's worth.

That Mallory is no good ship it to me and I will dispose of it properly it is dual points so if you like points thats your call electronic better IMHO but points work.
Thanks-My son had point setup on his '74. Now we have a '85 360 in it w/the ECM-I just have to figure out how to hook it up from the old points system OR, use the Mallory. It would be easier for him to go electronic seeing he is not really a mechanic etc.

I don't know anything about Mallory distributors so I'm not much help there.
Thanks-I should have googled it or checked before she bought it but where I live we don't have good reception of internet on our phones so I didn't check till I got to a 4g area at lunch time.
