Gen1 L Pushrod questions

I have a 94 Lightning 351 that was a hydraulic flat tappet cam that I have installed a roller camshaft from a late 5.0L into (also has Edelbrock Performer RPM heads and Crane roller rockers). I need to know if there are any off the shelf pushrods I can get for this application or if I need to go ahead and get the lengths measured and hope the local speed shop has a length close to what I need. Anybody have any insight?

Try using pushrods from a 96-97 F-250 5.8, as those trucks came with roller motors. I believe they're 7.567" and most local auto parts stores can get way is to measure it though.

Don't for get to swap out your distributor gear to a steel unit if you haven't done so already.
