SRAM S7 push rod lenght ?

Hi, everybody. I recently got used SRAM S hub, build a wheel, then got new clickbox, shifter (for a triple price than a hub itself ) and in third place got new pushrod with that small tube.
It seems that rod iz too long, clickbox can't sit on its place, rod is 121mm and tube is 74mm lenght. Maybee they sold me rod from other model hub? Then i can just cut it, but i must know right lenght...

Thank You, tcs, now i know how much to cut, just wondering which end to sacrifice. If that "thread like" is important? I think i will fabricate testing rod from spoke

Yup. I just measured one. 90.84mm. 2.45 mm thick. That would be about the thickness of a 12 g spoke I think. Possible replacement if necessary.
