      Apparently they're different sizes because one of them was too big for the hole on the left.

      I also found the other piece of the pushrod resting between two valvesprings, glad it didn't go anywhere and break anything else. Final tally was 3 bent, 2 broken.
      that probly isnt good, you might want to look at the bottom of the lifter REAL good!!!

        yea - that doesn't sound right at all....

        inspect everything as you are re - assembling - make sure the cam lobes look ok and you don't have any "metal flake" look to the oil.

        I over revved my clevo once and bent a couple pushrods and pushed out a couple lifters - I had to guess where they went - I either guessed right or it didn't matter - cause that engine ran for years after that with no problems.
        There's always something new to learn.

          What did we do before digital cameras and the internet to share our carnage?
