No the cam followers will stop it coming out as you cant hold them up easily,unless you make twelve individual retaining mechanisms as the pushrod hole is only very small to get down.

what we do at my work (cummins) we have a engine that has the same set up as a td42 in regards to the cam followers what we made up at work is some wood dowel which are a little bit bigger diameter than the pushrod and bevel the end that goes into the follower so when you push it in in jams in the follower and then you can pull it up we made one for every follower then you lift 2 up at a time and cable tie them together so they hold eachother up so a cable tie from one dowel to the other and do this to every one of them and you should be able to pull youre cam out. see how ya go

cheers mitch
