  • I thought pushrods were supposed to be straight??

    Well I had been chasing down a miss in the 98 blue Z and after plugs and wires didn't fix it i finally had a chance to pull the valve cover on the drivers side and found a loose rocker arm.

    Low and behold I pulled out this:


    I haven't pulled the passenger side yet so there may be more bent push rods.

    Hopefully there isn't more internal damage but I have a feeling the pistons and valves kissed each other a few times. Oh well, another good excuse to mod. :emb:

    Ooooooh Kevin, phone call on the way here soon!!!

    WOW! Seen that more than once! I have also seen a lot of cylinder heads come off with smiley faces on the pistons and they ran just fine Good luck I think you will be fine!

      Yeah Brent that was quite the sight when I pulled it out but unfortunately with further inspection after I opened it up the engine is toast. But I am on the right track now thanks to Kevin and Ryan.
