B & S Push Rods

I have a 14.5 hp OHV Briggs & Stratton engine that had a blown head gasket. Here is my problem when I went to put it back together I noticed that the push rods were different. They are both the same length but one is steel with a round ball type end and the other is aluminum with a bullet type head. I'm not sure what goes where. any info please.
