It's not always #5, it just seems like that is somewhat common.
I changed four bad #5 injectors in a row over this winter, NOT including my own which was terrible. Does that mean anything? no, it just means things happen coincidentally.
I've never bent a pushrod either but my guess is it may have something to do with a valve that gets stuck in the guide. I always bar the engine over atleast a dozen full times after I'm done putting the heads on just to make sure everything is seated and looks good. I also do like the book says and put the dowel on the crank at 6 o'clock before I start and after I'm done.
