bent valve?

Long story short did hg and studs. Started up and its was popping through intake. Took valve covers off and found a broken in half rocker and its pushrod bent into a u. I get that its probably my fault and the push rod probably wasnt in lifter corretly. Question is what are the chances i bent a valve.. kinda just need someone to tell me everything will be ok...lol..

Re: bent valve?

more than likely you just effed up the rocker and push rod. Its good practice to turn the motor over by hand a good few revolutions to ensure you dont have a mishap like that. Install the new parts and see how it runs, im sure its ok.

Just run pressure on that cylinder(with valves closed) thru the glow plug hole.

Re: bent valve?

Just remove the glow plug and use a rubber tipped air nozzle!!!! Not rocket science.
