Default Bent push rods :(

Before you get all crazy/sad about the title of this thread, this DID NOT happen to the monte I (in a round about kind of way) got a 05 husqvarna riding mower with a 24 horse briggs & stratton motor. The only problem is that it only ran on 1 cylinder . I started tearing into it, only to find that the right cylinder has somehow bent both the intake and exhaust push rods to the point that the intake was completely off the rocker and just "floating" around in there (hence it wouldn't fire. I went out and got 2 new push rods, replaced them, and had the mower up and running like a champ, only thing is. . . i can't figure out how it happened, unless it just backfired really bad and nailed them both. I adjusted the valves to make sure there wasn't too much tension, but other than that i'm coming up empty on answers.

BTW - this is the second time since new that this has happened, 1st time was covered under warranty



If you're stumped, don't feel too bad. . . . i just figured with quite a few motorheads on here, it wouldn't hurt to post this and get some opinions on what some problems might be.

im' actually trying to decide if i should throw the whole mower on CL while it's still running and just use the money i get from it to buy a new one. Only things that are keeping me from doing this is. . . i've already torn the whole thing down so i already know how to fix most of it should anything else go wrong, and it has a bagger and everything, so it's pretty well set up.
