I seem to recall that the template adjustment was meant to be 
done without any carpet in the way, so you might want to watch 
out for that. FYI, I measured a pushrod here and got 152.5mm. I 
only measured one this time, but I'm pretty sure I measured several 
the last time and they were all pretty close.

I'd be interested to know how yours turns out after you use the 
template to adjust it.
