Re: 4.9 bending pushrods

I know its been a while since you posted this thread, but I though I would share my experences with bent push rods.

Back in the 50's my dad drove a 1956 Ford F-800 truck, and it got to bending push rods. He stared adding a quart of RESLONE to the oil about ever 3rd oil change, and didn't have anymore problems.
