4.0 Head on 258 question (re:pushrods)

I am about to put a 4.0 head on my 258 and have a question regarding pushrods. I had the 4.0 head rebuilt and decked (milled) to ensure it was completely flat at the mating surfaces (block-side and intake/exhaust side). I have read that the stock pushrods are usable in the swap. However, is it possible that since the head was decked that the pushrods could be to long now? I would not expect that the machine shop removed very much metal from the head but I do not know what the tolerances are.

Anyone have any idea if this will be a problem or not? How can I check or measure to ensure the correct pushrod length before final assembly?

Thanks for your help and input.

If they just trued the mating surface you should be fine with the stock 258 pushrods.
