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.

PR= OL - BD/2

- Where PR is the Pushrod Length (inches)
- OL is the overall length (in)
- BD is the ball diameter (in)

To calculate a pushrod length, subtract half of the ball diameter from the overall length.

## How to Calculate Pushrod Length?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Pushrod Length.

Example Problem #1:

- First, determine the overall length (in).
- The overall length (in) is given as: 5.

- Next, determine the ball diameter (in).
- The ball diameter (in) is provided as: 2.

- 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

Test your knowledge using the equation and check your answer with the calculator..

PUSH= OL – BD/2** = ?**
