Does anyone have any input on a source for a BB fuel pump push rod that will last ??? I have sent board member MCcannix ? a PM asking for price and delivery estimate time wise. With him being in Cananda, I am trying to establish a backup plan in case the timing with him doesn't work out.
I looking for any other recommendations good or bad ( so I know where not to go).
I just removed my second comp cams failed push rod from a customers motor and time is of the essence.
Any input is appreciated.

Thanks beer

I have had good luck with the ones from Mancini Racing...
They also carry the steel rod from Hughes Engines.

Here is the link..

Thank you, Due to the border issue with Canada (closed & delays shipping) that may be an alternative.
Anybody else, good or bad ??

I spoke with a sales guy at Mancini. He said that had a bad batch a couple of years back but no returns since and they are getting them from moroso. he also said they do not stock the ones from Hughes frown
One wouldn't think it would be that hard (no pun intended) to make a flippin' fuel pump push rod.

Sinitro, how many have you used from Mancini? How many miles on them ?? and when did you buy them or over what period of time ??

Sorry for all the questions but I really don't want to roll the dice as it is a customers car and I don't need the headache of a torched motor due to a 25.00 junk part.

Any other input PLEASE !!!

Are the NOS ones better than Hughes? I like to have an extra one.

Find an old used oem that still measures the right length and it will last forever.

I would be curious to know if the worn out ones were used with a high pressure pump or a standard pressure pump. Which end wears down? Cam end, pump end, both ends?


In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. In practice, there is.

This hardened one left me on the side of the road. After that I bought all the NOS ones I could find. I won't run an aftermarket one regardless of the name.

run a fine file across the side of the rod (not on the bearing surface that contacts the block). if the file can't mark or remove metal it's ok.

Due shipping delays ( borders closed) I scored a couple from T2R9.

And Robert I don't know. The ones I previously had were bought in 93 or so and were standard Mopar replacements in a white package with a part #. Not the like the ones you have pictured. Hopefully someone else will chime in to say yay or nay beer

I'm not sure that's an adequate test as the failed ones from comp passed that test shruggy beer

I suppose the only true test is to test the Rockwell and who has the equipment to do that? anyhow it's worked for me.

Used OE works great or NOS/McCannix. On my daughters 69 RT the cam end of a repro wore 1/4" after about 4hrs of driving. I wouldn't trust any of the repros.
