This is my first 500 Rubicon. It had a bad head gasket so I fixes that got the head and everyrhing on but having troubles getting the push rods to go in place on the rocker which is on the valve cover. What way is best to get these in and back together

you need to make sure your timing is set for piston on top dead center on the compression stroke, then your cam lobes will be facing down, which makes it easier to put the push rods back in down through the head, and into the center of the cam followers.
