File this under FYI...I replaced the guideplates that came on my heads to get better rocker alignment.  I used the comp cams adjustable ones.  All went seemingly well as I have broken in the engine, survived glowing headers, etc.  After I had warmed the engine and was setting the hot lash I noticed that one of the pushrods seemed to have a lot more room to move than the others.  After I looked at and measured I could see that the pushrod slot was about an eighth of an inch wider than all the rest Asking

Fortunately I had some extras as the original guideplates gave good alignment on a few.  After examination of the one I took off I am guessing they sent me one for a larger pushrod engine.  These are all individually packaged and then placed in the box so I would guess that someone put the wrong one in the wrong box. 
 Long story short I may be frustrated that they sent the wrong one and that I did not originally catch it but I am ecstatic that I caught it before I zinged it up to 7000 rpms.

Take this as a public service announcement reminding us not to assume that the parts we get are the right ones...

It sucks to get old but at least the expectations are lower...

I have also heard of people getting uneven numbers of halves.

It happens. Call Comp, I'm sure that they will send you whatever you need.

Doing more with less, or something like that.

You might need some Titanium rods and a flow bench!  LMAO on floor

I honestly don't get it.
