Enter the overall length (in) and the ball diameter (in) into the Pushrod Length Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Pushrod Length.

## Pushrod Length Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Pushrod Length.

PUSH= OL – BD/2

• Where PSH is the Pushrod Length (inches)
• OL is the overall length (in)
• BD is the ball diameter (in)

## How to Calculate Pushrod Length?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Pushrod Length.

Example Problem #1:

1. First, determine the overall length (in).
• The overall length (in) is given as: 5.
2. Next, determine the ball diameter (in).
• The ball diameter (in) is provided as: 2.
3. Finally, calculate the Pushrod Length using the equation above:

PUSH= OL – BD/2

The values provided above are inserted into the equation below and computed.

PUSH= 5 -2 /2 = 4.00 (inches)

Example Problem #2:

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

overall length (in) = 6

ball diameter (in) = 3
