Subject: 4.5 litre pushrods
I believe that each of the sanction variant engines have different length pushrods. Is that correct?

My S3 engine has longer pushrods than a spare someone gave me but Iíve no idea which sanction it fits.

Does anyone have information of what length suits each engine? Iím interested in getting some made.

Hi David
Sanction 3 push rods are longer and are also of smaller diameter, only clearing the head by a small amount.
A Sanction 3 head with integral inlet tract is deeper than the earlier sanctions which I imagine is the main reason for the difference but the crankcase was also modified / stiffened and has larger studs securing the block to the crankcase so there may be some differences in dimensions there too but I believe it is mainly the depth of the head.
Cheers
Bill

Thanks Bill.

I now have a sample of both lengths of pushrods so will draw them up properly so that weíve records. Iíll get prices and then they should be available through the club.
