MAY DAY-MAY DAY- 2000 PSD BROKEN R MOUNTS

Gals and Guys,


Drove my PSD to repair shop sat for 3 weeks,one week past the two week scheduled repair date. Was having dead knock sound coming from the intake and the dashboard oil gauge showed zero oil pressure. Tired of waiting drove it home to repair myself. Took off driver's side valve cover and found the # 6 rocker arms MOUNTS broken. The rods are still straight. Would this have caused the zero oil pressure reading? What are the best pushrods and rocker arms to install? Added a few photos.

Thanks

I bet your gauge is ****ed. Pick up a cheap manual gauge and verify. Truck wouldn't run without oil pressure .

As for what parts to use. OEM is fine unless you want to go for big power later

Thanks, OEM...
The push rods with an eye inspection look straight and one of the balls

for the rocker is missing. Got the broken off pieces from the mount. I will use

a magnet to search for the other. I dropped one push rod to the right side of

where the rockers would be down another hole trying to see if I could set it

where it would belong. I can still see it and this I will get with a magnet

also.
