What a bummer! :(
So did this happen on cold start up, cruising along, or wide open throttle racing a Raptor? :popcorn:

Just cruising, about 35, all warmed up. Out of the blue it just started running like crap like a super bad exhaust leak, then died the first time I stopped. Was very hard to keep running but ran moderately rough at 3000rpm. Managed to drive it home about 5 minutes away. I had figured it was a crazy exhaust leak like I broke a manifold bolt. There was no noise like a valvetrain issue.

I had posted that info above just after one of yours.

Cam lobe and lifter seem fine. Pushrod seat in the lifter looks fine. Bearing feels the same as the other 7 on that side with some hand load.

No indicator of failure. I think 187,000 miles of hard use broke a valve spring, or the top of the valve snapped off.

I’m really surprised the valve seat is completely untouched.
