Default Pushrods

Other than Manton does anyone offer a 3/8 pushrod with a .120 wall.

About the strongest 3/8 pushrod you will find will be the Manton 3/8 x .133 wall 4140 Salt Treat. Aask for it.

As far as I know Smith Brothers only goes up to the 3/8 x .120 wall 4130.

Ps
Both are great companies to deal with

Comp Cams just introduced 3/8 pushrods with .135" wall. You can special order them in any length, one piece with formed ends.

Manton has just started a extra heavy wall 3/8 now. I forget what wall it is. Terry just mentioned it to me yesterday when we were discussing something else.

I wouldn't buy pushrods from a cam company on a bet. Been there and done that too many years. It was Comp Cams that broke me. What they called custom length and custom pushrod was a length available in ther book and it took two weeks to get them. I was over charged on my card for them too.

Soon after that I discovered Smith Brothers. I bought essentially the same thing as form Comp but I spend much much less money and got them in one day. I was hooked and since 1994 I have only bought custom pushrods from either Smith Bros or from Manton. I get what I need. I pay less money and get extremely good service.
