Install push rods on a 6v71 detroit diesel

Your talking valves , not rods. Yes they are a pain. The valves have to be flat and tight against the head, then compress the spring and cap to get the keepers in. I modified large welding clamps to do this.

Engine wont start

Replace the damaged push rod and check the valves and compression.

How do i remove lifters in 02 impala

Your push rods are different lengths. The intake push rods are the shorter ones and are marked with yellow paint. The exhaust push rods are marked with green paint. Double-check to make absolutely certain that you have them all in the correct position. (failure to do so will cause IMMEDIATE severe engine damage when the starter is cranked.)

Other than that, it is common for the lifters to leak down when the engine has been disassembled. I have even had several that made it very hard to start and "clattered" for like 5 minutes after starting the engine. It will be OK when the lifters pump back up.

Location of Pushrods

Push rods are used on engines that do NOT have overhead cams. They are generally about 8-12 inches long, about 1/4" in diameter, and run from the cam lifters to the rockers (at the valves). There is one push rod for each valve. A V8 with 2 valves per cylinder will have 16 push rods.

Typically, you remove the valve cover, remove the rocker, and the push rod can be removed.

Engine not failed oil pressure good engine ticking think it is rod bearings how do you replace on 1997 chev Blazer

hold up rod bearings were did you get that?lets take it from the top.camshaft lobs move lifters on rotation,which lifters move push rods,push rods push valves up and down,which other side of valves push up and down valve stems,which open and close exhaust and intake stems.ok now were clear on that to see your push rods.take off your valve covers on side with tick.1.check for valve loosness.need a feeler gauge for this and specs for you truck to do this.because ticking is mostly associated with valve loosness or to tight.2.if rod is bad loosin valves but not off and inspect the rods for bends.on a flat surface.replace if bend.also make sure they to go back in same place.and repeat step 1.finally noise continues need to take in and checked possible internal damage.

Random/multiple cylinder misfire detected

when u bent the push rod u might have bent the valve in the head ,by puting the longer push rod where it didnt belong it kept the valve open when the piston came up and the force of the piston on the valve bent the push rod,you will have to remove the head,hope this helps

Briggs motor bent one push rod

This is a vary commom problem with an Intek engine, I have a similar 21HP engine with similar issue. The valve is sticking in the valve guide, the valve guide usually slides in or out. If out, the guide can jamb against the keepers and not allow full valve opening, thus bending the rod. Fix the loose guide and tight valve before you put in another rod, or you will soon be putting more rods in. I think B&S should help everyone on this one. If the guide goes in, it can cause the valve not to close fully and cause a no run condition.

Engine cranks slowly after overhaul

the only thing i can think of is
1. did you check the journal clearance to the main and rod caps? if this isnt within specs could be too tight.
2. did you put the rod caps and main berring caps on the same way you took them did you mark every thing 1 for #1 2 for #2 ect. if you installed the berring caps the oppsite way or didnt keep them in order some thing could be out of round causing tightness.
3. the same goes for pistons.......the mark should be pointing front for all. (ch approiate engine rebuild for info)
i would recomend trying to remove all spark plugs and try to turn the engine by hand( DO NOT TURN IT BACKWARDS>see which way the starter turns the motor) feel how it turns. if its hard then easy some thing is out of round poss installed wrong. personally id take down the pan and check the install. also take valve covers off ck the clearence of rocker arms. check your pushrods valve motion ect. you might also might want to break it down before you do some expensive damage.
tip.....if you didnt mark the rods and main berring caps and might have put them together incorrectly, remove the berrings and look at the honing marks. with patience and a good light you can see if they are lined up(cap and block for mains and cap and rod for connecting rods.) ie the cross marks line up.
good luck
