Y-Block Push Rods

FTE Family,

So, I bent the front push rod on the passenger side of the '57 Mercury 292 that is replacing the 272 from my F-350 wrecker. I figured, I will just get one from the old engine. However, the 292 one is a good bit thicker than the 272's. After searching several parts sites, I have come up with Melling part number MPR-73.

By the way, I bent the push rod by using a bolt that was too long when we put the 292 on the cherry picker to install it.

Thanks in advance,
