I appreciate all the responses I got to my question. Someone asked the mileage on my engine. It's 160,000 miles, more or less. Steve was bang-on on his diagnosis. This is what I found when I started taking her apart: definitely the rail let go. All the rocker arms on the exhaust, I can pluck them out with my fingers when the cam is on its low side, so definitely the valves are bent. Next weekend I'm going to pull the left head off and check for piston damage and at the same time I might as well pull the other head since I'll have the intake off anyway. If it isn't any worse than the bent valves then I'll proceed with the repair. In your experience, is there anything else that I should be checking for? Rick.
