Well, in a roller block, some ppl like to re-use pushrods and lifters but I'd replace them if I were you. I'd get the roller rockers, lifters and pushrods. That should be it. Of course, you'll need new header gaskets too.

You can re use the stock pushrods or get replacement stock pushrods if you plan to get the pedistal mount 6037's.
You can re use your stock rockers as well, but the rollers are sure nice if you can afford them.

You will need head, intake gaskets, 1.6 rockers, use your stock pushrods, and good to go.

get an adjustable fuel pressure regulator and fuel pressure gauge. you will need that too.

Edelbrock says you have to have hardened pushrods.......is this not true?

Only with the stud mount rockers because the guides they use rub on the pushrods. I'm running stock pushrods with my combo.
