I pulled the valve cover to begin the lifter removal and the this is the first thing I see.... Yep entire rod is missing.......I found it in the valley and pulled it out. It was broken in half and bent to hell. Lifter was domed out on the flat end as well. My next problem is there is a lifter somewhere in the valley. I have gotten seven of the out and I can not find the 8th. It is not in its "home" and I have fished around in that valley for two hours and I can not hear or feel anything and nothing jumps on the magnet. Any advice on that?
