Push rod

Anyone here know how to properly fit a new firing pin safety pushrod onm a Kimber?
I lost mine (long story), and ordered a new one from Kimber and plan on installing it myself, but not sure how to make sure it is fitted right.
I plan on doing this myself, so please no "take it to a smith" replies please.
I am very handy with most types of weapons but never fitted one of these.

I do not believe there is any fitting involved with that.
Have you installed it? Function check. Then check firing pin protrusion with a
pencil.

Just ordered it today, thought I'd do a little research.
I'm thinking you might be right on it being a drop in part.

It should be a drop in part. since the Kimber uses the Swartz safety (which is actuated by the grip safety), this is what I do to check it:

MAKE SURE THE GUN IS UNLOADED!!!

while gripping the grip safety, use a small punch and push the firing pin forward. The firing pin should be able to be pushed forward.

Now let go of the grip safety, and push on the firing pin again. it should now be blocked by the FP Block.
