broken pushrod

Recommended Posts

well I thought I did everything right, I have some minds boggled, and have been told it never shouldve happend. Well it did, I wouldnt really say bent, id say broken :wall:2659115270091510438S425x425Q85.jpg"]2659115270091510438S425x425Q85.jpg

so I setup well i thought when I got comp 910 valvesprings.

Now I dont know if I should go aftermarket pushrods or not, if I go aftermarket then i run the risk of breaking something somewhere else valve or piston, but what I need to figure out is how did I float the valve?

Any ideas?

I agree with you though I would not go aftermarket push rods.. leave them as the weakest link and not something more major!!

That sucks Dano I broke a pushrod in my truck awhile back and I thought the engine was blown up. I am eventually going to get some aftermarket ones but still running the stockers for now. I am running heavier valve springs on mine also and wonder if that isn't part of the reason it broke?
