Mario's Motor

It all started with a bad running motor. Once the valve covers were off this is what I found. Lifter was F'd... and it was driven about 500 miles with no valves operating. The #1 piston is presumably fried so instead of spending a lot of money on machine work, to just swap in forged rods with a new motor.



So the truck is here, I went and got a forged rod motor for it.





The valve train had all been removed so I had to pull the heads since some had dropped into the cylinders.


















Prepping the block for paint after I get the studs/gaskets.

2 Broken pushrods on cylinder #1, the valves were not opening for 500 miles...

Nope, just take everything off the front and take her out.

But what caused the broken pushrods, they dont usually just break, especially not both, and if they broke then the valves would stay fully seated and there shouldn't be any piston contact right?

I am not sure, probably something to the tune of WOT on ice from the story I've been told.


Anyway, yes when the pushrods broke the valves stayed closed.



Here are the heads I finished today...
