Total movement on the pushrod is only 0.200". The pushrod should be perfectly straight. It rides on an eccentric on the camshaft.

I took a couple pics of the rod I measure it sticks out about 2 1/4" from face to top of rod but when I crank over the engine the rods doesn't go up or down it's stationary. I even put a drift pin which is smaller od in to the hole and it's stationary also is the cam lobe broken or something else.

I wonder if your cam gear has broken? Does the engine run if you splash some gas down the carb? Can you see valves moving through the fuel pump hole?
