      Yeah I kind of think it initially happened because of either a cheap or broken timing chain. So I would prefer to spend a lot of money...

      That‘s good advice. Treat the problem like an onion, one layer at a time. Even if you end up with a full rebuild of your short block...

      Probably in the valley under the intake is where the pushrod ended up. I too would pull the intake and check a the lifters and pushrods...

      No sorry, I definitely described that weird. The leakage was only 10% so my rings are good. I do have 3 bent push rods though. #8 is bad...

      I don’t know how this happened but number five doesn’t have a pushrod. They also must’ve mixed up cylinders seven and eight because...
