bent pust rods

I posted question of the cause of bent push rods on my 99 powerstroke. I don't think anyone has answered. It may be I am not using this forum correctly but it appears that several have looked but no one as answered. Could really use some input on this.
Thanks.

I had bent push rod on mine before and it ended up being the injector was over fueling the cylinder causing the cylinder wall to be washed. This then caused the rings to fail and come apart, causing the cylinder and valve to have an intimate moment, thus bending the push rod and breaking the rocker...

not any more, have 200 or so miles on a fresh rebuild motor, with new injectors, and lots of other extras...
