Push Rod Issue quick fix!!!
For those of you out there that broke ur push rod and are running into issues getting a stronger one or getting the clutch pivot arm upgrade I have found a cheap solution.
I bent and snapped my push rod, so i decided i was going to go with the dcr billet push rod since only one company makes the clutch pivot upgrade (Rage-Tek) and you to have wait for it. Well I wanted my car fixed over the weekend and the DCR push rod wasnt going to be in till tuesday, so I went to advanced auto and purchased a clutch master cylinder for a 1988 Ford F350 Diesel. I took it home and pulled it apart so that I had just the push rod (its about 1.5 inches too long). I measured the F350 push rod to the srt push rod assembly and marked it on the push rod. Then I cut the F350 push rod so it matched the stock push rod. I then installed the F350 push rod with 2 washer and a E clip.
The F350 push rod is waaasssyyy thicker then the srt4 push rod, I have had it in my car so far for 2 weeks without any issues. I ran it at the track on sunday and again no issues. Seems to be holding up great. Whenever I get a chance I will post pictures so you know what im talking about.
Low 11's maybe high 10's soon!!
