    I am trying to figure out which pushrod is the intake pushrod on a 77 FXE for static timing purposes. To look at it I would think it is the second form the front of the first two. Is this right or wrong? I guess the rookie is really showing now, right guys and gals? Thanks in advance for any help you can provide!!!!

    The two in the centre of the four are the intake as the exhaust is in the front of the front cyl. and rear of the rear cyl. Clear as mud?

    E-Z way to remember is the two outside pushrods (and tubes) point to the exhaust outlets. The inners point to the intake manifold. :s
