Re: 7.3 IDI engine with 5 bent push rods on one side?
I would pull the other side and check them,replace the bent ones and any suspect rocker arms, drain the oil and change the filter and try to run it. I saw one that a guy used to start it and go cold and the excess oil pressure caused the lifters to pump up and bend some push rods. Turned out the relief was stuck, nothing else was hurt in that instance, good luck
