How the hell do you bend a pushrod like that? I would be looking into seeing what the cause was.

lol your guess is as good as mine, the highest i let my rengine rev is about 4500 RPM...i think i have a lifter going bad, i think it gets stuck when my oil gets too thin...then some weird act of physics takes place and waalaa, odd bent push rod lol...but yeah we replaced those, changed the oil and everything works great again...it was really weird

i seriously think it was just a freak act of physics...cause i drove the car home from work (30 min drive), everything worked great, parked the car for 2 hours, when to start it and all of a sudden its backfiring through the carb...so unless its deeper in the engine, dunno what the problem is, like i said i think a lifter is going bad
