Push Rods - V40 Cup Push Rods
Trend Performance - V40 Cup Push Rods
Trend Performance has introduced what they believe to be the world’s first self-lubricating (V40)5/16in hard-tip competition pushrods. These pushrods were designed primarily for BAE Alcohol and similar racing applications.
While their lower ends, those that engage the lifter seats, remain unaltered their upper ends now feature self-lubricating tool steel tips hardened to 60Rc. Both 5/16in diameter ball ends are formed with a 210-degree radius at the end of a 1-5/8in taper to provide proper operating clearance around the rockers as well as the lifters and lifter bores.
Engineered to overcome degradation troubles on the upper ball of high-revving high-powered engines, these new hard tip pushrods are now available in the following diameters: 7/16in, 1/2in, and 9/16in. Their wall thicknesses are 0.125in or 0.165in; 0.125in or 0.165in or 0.200in; and 0.200in respectively.
Prepared in a satin finish over a precision center-less ground surface and laser-etched to the customers’ request, Trend’s hard tip pushrods are available in any length—usually 6.000 to 13.000 inches.
