Re: Please help: I screwed up my 355 valvetrain.
You might be able to salvage the rocker arms depending on damage to the roller, would not worry about the body as marks can be polished down, just make sure roller is free to roll across the valve tip. Any idea what brand those rockers are?
As someone pointed out, those valve stems look boogered, to fix , they need to come out and be redressed , if they are not hit too hard. Valve man will tell you.
I see you still have those oil splash shields, not necessary if you have roller tip rockers. Might even look at valve springs and or retainers.
Need to look at those rocker arm studs for wear or damage . The top threaded end should be flat, not cupped. This is what helps lock down the allen screw in those poly locks. Need to make sure those allen set screws are not sticking out too far in nut barrel. This along with no rocker arm stud end flats, could have allowed the nuts to back off.
Yes, looks like you need to pull intake and see what else is bent or broke.
