valve train

  1. Valve Train Failure (caught early?)

    Tearing down my engine yesterday for a head gasket problem, with the engine in the truck, I found some metal in the intake valley as I was wiping up some gunky oil mixture. Not smiling about it, I started to look around for more. This led me to the exhaust valve pushrod on cyl # 4 (on an SBC)...
  2. Pushrod end types

    Alright guys I don't know much behind the idea of different end types but I have a set of 1 piece pushrods and a set with the welded balls on the end. Which should I use? What are the advantages of each if any? Please let me know.
