6.0 trouble in Hays, KS

Hi I just got done doing a stud and injector job on my 04 f-250 with the 6.0 and when I stated it up I heard a whooping noise, after some research it looks like I have some valve train problems from not correctly setting the dowl pin. Now I am just kind of lost as of what to do, I have the drivers side valve cover off now.
Thanks for any assistance

I wish I could help you Man, but I didn't have my 6.0 long enough to get the wrench time to know how to help you on that... Chris maybe?

I'm gonna say you have a bent push rod causing the issue. Check #5 cylinder since that seems to be the most common one to cause the problem.

Update, found that I had a bent push rod on the drivers side I think it was cylinder 4, went ahead and replaced it and that problem seems to be solved because there is no loud knocking noise now, but it is now running rough and I am getting an unbalance code from cylinder 5 and a low injector from 5, probably just going to take it to the dealer tomorrow because I don't have any more time to work on it.
Would a bad injector cause these codes to be thrown?
Thanks for all the help

Pull the injector plug and make sure that you didn't bend a pin over when you connected it.

It looked ok last night, after getting the code I pulled the injector and replaced the copper washer and all seals and reinstalled, did not make much difference if any.
