How in the hell did I get 5 bent push rods in my 258. pulling head tomrrow to see what is inside cylinders.

suggestions on what might have happered?

just bought this 80 J10 Engine ran well, drove it home, then this happened.

It had sat for 15 years.87K miles on it.

I am almost thinking that the timing chain jumped a tooth. that is why I am going to pull the head today. This will give me a good look at how the cylinders are. I also need to replace the rear main seal due to it leaking like a sieve. Then I can look at the exhaut manifold for cracks.

and the list goes on and I can clean up some of the mess in the engine compartment.
