    You need to upload your pic's to the gallery here if you want to post them in a thread. Webshots doesn't allow hotlinking so all the rest of us see is a little red 'X'.

    i couldn't see the pics of the pushrod. i have never seen one bent. i would be most concerned about the cam end of the rod. was that end beat up? hopefully the cam pushed it out of the way rather than beating up the lobe that drives the pushrod!
