Unhappy Two bent pushrods

Just passin' thru---------'06, 2500, 5.9/24v, 43Kmi, 100% stock work truck, bought new from Mr. Dodge, himself.

Digging into the dead Cummins (well, it was rattling like the top end is 3/4 full of empty beer cans) and found two bent pushrods on same cylinder.

Was always told that a bent pushrod is due to a piston kissing the particular valve. On the 5.9, is this 100% fersure, or are there experiences blamed off on other facts, ie. valve train failure due to excessive, worn clearances in the pushrod, rocker, crowsfoot and valve itself? No broken valve spring.

Still pending leakdown test on motor, but doubt the cylinder in question will be up to snuff.

Most all comments 'preciated, --M

Using bluecollar 'inhouse talent', truck was having filters, oil changed, being readied for pending new work about 50 miles on other side of town.

""Employee fired the motor up and was checking for filter leaks, when motor started to race"". Employee immediately jumped back into cab and turned off ignition. New, stock air filter had yet to be reinstalled. Mr. Dodge says 'no warranty, bring money if you want us to replace the motor'.

99% of the above is second or third hand and leaves me to ask more questions, but getting thinner and thinner answers. Really, we can imagine many scenarios as to what happened.

Thanks for your interests, --M

well if the rvs went high enough you could have taged the valves and bent the pushrods
i would look for a oil in the intake tract. did they brake clean the hell out of the oil filter and get alot in the intake/ air filter. just lookingfor the reason for the over rev

If the shop was at fault, they should be footing the bill.
