Using my pushrod checker I found the intake valve needs a 9.64 and the exhaust needs a 9.59. This is factoring in for a .040 preload. Rock auto sells a 9.6210 pushrod. Is this size a good compromise?

I got the mahle seals today. Theyt are advertised as rubber/metal yet upon inspection today they are simply the rubber umbrella type. They look like they'll fit much tighter on the stem.
