Push rods can also bend from sticking valves.  This could happen from using
too much starting fluid.  I found this out on my 66 Mustang.  I started it
several times with starting fluid which disolved the varnish on the valves,
which then re-hardened and caused some of the valves to stick.  Afterwards,
I found 3 bent rods, all on the intake side.
