I would never try it. the pushrods are hardened. I think the heat generated from that could damage the heat treatment, even if you could get the end to have the proper shape. which im not sure if thats a stamping procedure of if there just turned down? whatever . Id just buy new ones and have some piece of mind.
btw, I milled my 241's .033" and no issues with intake fitment/exh fitment. but did have to flycut the pistons. I wrote a thread about doin it its not hard and the gains in compression (read: more efficient engine, HP, torque, overal driveability) are well worth the extra time/money invested. plus it opens up your choices of whatever cam you want to an extent. I went with a custom grind 235/242 .650/.612 lift. its nice P)
