New Pushrod; Now the valve lash can't be set?!
Just ran my valves. Found #6 exhaust was way out of whack (too much gap). Pulled the pushrod and found the ball end was gone. Not sure how it happened; But either way I replaced the pushrod and now I cannot adjust the valve lash. The adjustment screw is turned all the way out and its still too tight. Adjusted and re-adjusted to make certain the bottom of the pushrod was in the tappet.
What gives? What next?
I had adjusted the valves using the old push rod with the missing end and it ran well. But the adjustment screw was turned in further than the rest by 4/5 turns which is why I pulled the pushrod in the first place.
