Engine kept on bending the exhaust push rods.
The head change was routine, everything looked normal, no signs of bent valves, or piston contact, Upon further examination I discovered that the bolts for the exhaust manifold were too long. What was happening is the bolts were distorting the casting portion for the exhaust valve guide. This I noticed when attaching the exhaust manifold when the hex head bolts bottomed before the flange was tightened. I ended up going to a 1/4" shorter hex bolt which seems to have remedied the problem. This was a "Factory New" engine so I deduct the fastener situation is a problem at the factory assembly line.

I had a bent exhaust valve push rod and found the valve guide had moved in the head.
There are quite a few steps and I referenced the engine service manual that I purchased after encountering the same problem on the #2 cylinder. It could have been completed in about an hour however I do not have engine repair experience and wanted to take my time to ensure it was done correctly.
