Well does anyone know how I can tell the difference between the intake push rods and an exhaust push rods without me halving to measure them. I got a tear down printed off at my local AutoZone and they said the intake will be 5 3/4 inches long and the exhaust will be 6 inches long but that is all the help they offer me on that.

I also make up a box to house the push rods while I replace the lifter so I don't get them mixed up. That wouldn't be a good thing to do.

doesnt matter which is which just make a reference left or right on the box and stick them in in the order you take them out, then you put them back in the same hole

That does sound like the best way to do it. I just not need to get a hold of all the torque specs.
