I'm kinda new to the 12 valve but I did a head gasket replacement cause mine was leaking everywhere and I read that I needed to make sure my pushrods were put back into their seats and I was wondering if someone could shed some light on that

Yeah, you gotta make sure the pushrods are in the socket of the tappet. It's not hard to tell, stick the pushrod down, and then try and pull up slightly, if there's a bit of suction and it doesn't want to come up, then it's seated, if it lifts with no resistance, then it's not. You can play around with one a little to get the hang of it, Once you do, it's super easy.
