Ha I'm 5'9 and a buck seventy. I got on top after taking the heat shield off and was able to get to the 7th and 9th fairly easily. 9th was bad but all others were just mildly worn. Replaced with copper champions. Not surprisingly though the knock is still there. I'd really like to do this project myself and save a few grand, bought the chilton service manual online, but have been repeatedly advised by friends and family family to bite the bullet and take it to a shop. I've got 100k in student loans so what's another 5 right? ... right?

Fairly easy to remove valve covers and check pushrods vavles springs and rockers if its a top end issue can also run without the valve covers to pin point where noise is coming from

Well it's not looking good. The pushrod was severely bent and the heads are warped. My mechanic is away until Monday when he will pull the heads and check the block to see if there is any damage there. If so then I don't know what I'll do. If there is no damage to the block then I'm looking at $4k for parts, labor, and having the heads machined. Are performance heads worth an additional $2k or so? I know everyone has allegiances to various vendors but roe racing has some heads for ~2750. Are there others? The reason I ask is that, and my thinking is flawed (I know), but if I'm spending 5k or more I don't want to get my truck back and it merely be operating "normal". It's like I'm spending all that money to break even (even though I'd technically be spending it to get a functional vehicle). After all of this, if I get performance heads, I can at least say "yeah it all sucked but at least I got an additional 35 horses out of the ordeal"... or something to that effect. Let me know thoughts.
Even my dog is sad (second pic "blue brindle" great dane):

Damn that's a bent pushrod. How bad are the heads warped? Could you just have them shaved? If no motor damage what all parts will you need.

Odd that the heads are not off yet and the prognosis is heads are warped......
