Collapsed Lifter

Collapsed Lifter

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

01 7.3 w/ 150k Motor was smoking bad and rough idle origionally thought it was an injector. Pulled the passenger side valve cover and on #8 cylinder the front pushrod was loose laying in its hole its as straight as can be but not connected. Is it a collapsed lifter? And whats the easiest way to replace it? If the head HAS to be pulled it looks like I can maybe do it in frame, has any one done it? Didnt get a response in 911section

Yeah the head will have to be pulled. You should be able to do it in the frame....it will be fun, but doable.

What could have caused this? Like I said the pushrod is just laying there not connected straight as can be???? Is that forward valve on the #8 cylinder exh or int? Any other stuff that could be damaged w running it that way?
