Well this was a surprise today. Was re-lashing my valve train and found this on intake #8. Glad we found it when we did, replaced it and all is well except for some carb adjustments we need to do.

We always replace factory pushrods when we do a rebuild of any sort. Not sure if that is factory but for peace of mind go with thicker wall. After so many miles the original pushrods can be fatigued and should be replaced.

That's not bent,it's mangled. Did the engine run on "all 8" before checking the lash,or did this happen during the check?
Agree with Tom,I wouldn't even fire the engine till I knew what caused this.
