Cool Push rod install

I just purchased a set of quick install comp cams vthunder push rods for a 1980 FX shovelhead. Three of them are the same length and will fit in above the tappet block, no problem. The fourth one is a 1/4" longer and supposedly for the front intake but is not fitting in above the tappet block. I went ahead and called to double check that the kit was right, and was told it was.

Anyone ever run into this or have any suggestions on the install?
Any help would be appreciated,

thanks.

Well I won't limber up my fingers and prove just how stupid I am, so the best advice I can give is look to U-Tube.

Seems there is a video there covering everything I've thought of yet concerning HD products.

Front exhaust is where it goes if memory serves me correct.
