Why do those pushrod covers look warped towards the bottom?

Default JUst remove rocker poxes

Sometimes the seal or o-rings get pinched and/or don't seat right when you install the pushrod tubes and they start leaking. You may just need some new o-rings and fit it together again. I always lube the crap out of my o-rings and tubes w/ STP so they slip together easy and don't pinch.

You should only need to remove the rocker boxes so, you can move the pushrods out of the way to put new o-rings and gaskets on the lifter guide bases.

Much easier than pulling the whole thing apart.

I use the NRHS Colapable Pushrod tube kit with no leakage problems.

I thought I lubricated then well. I guess I'll know when I take it apart again.
