Yup you're right. Having one pushrod longer than the other is not problematic... as long as all other geometry is the same.

If you've followed Ameyam's other posts, issues and errors though, I'll bet this is a geometry problem.

In the photo one surface merely appears to be higher than the other and the angle of the 4-40 horns he is using does not appear to be equal.

It could be that is an illusion, but I'll put my money on a "user error".
