Another project down the road.

Thanks for all the help. First push rod issue I've ever had.

I'm going to hang the rod from the Mirror to remind my son that the truck is not a race car and he will be fixing the next valve he floats.
More likely due to extended idling or lots of short trips than 'racing' - but at my house, if it breaks while you are driving it - you've gotta fix it!!!
