    A push rod is a component of the valve train of certain piston engines.  its function is essentially to push the valve open.Rods used in an Over Head Valve engine to open and close the valves. They are moved by the cam and are about 8" long with a diameter of around 1/4". One end is pushed up by the cam and the other end makes contact with the rocker arms which rotates and pushes the valve open.
