Rocker arm in the way

I was pulling my 225s and on the #1 cylinder the rocker arm is preventing the injector from coming out. I had already busted my finger pretty bad and it was late so I didnt mess with it much. I did mess with it enough to figure it was the rocker and it was in the way and I couldnt get it out of the way. Have any of you had this problem? I was thinking maybe bent push rod or rocker but Im not sure. I was going to see if I could tell if the push rod was bent tomorrow. What do yall think?

Make sure everything is out of the way then bump the motor over a few times it should clear.

Re: Rocker arm in the way

do NOT bump the motor over if you already have any injectors out....you'll fill those cylinders with fuel when the pump kicks on.

Spending money I don't have on crap I don't need to impress people I don't know.

I have it tore down beyond using the starter. I was going to try the crank.

I was refering to bumping the motor over manually by using the starter wire on the passenger side with the key OFF my bad. And of course turning it over manually works too.
