Pushrod and rocker arm pushrod seat wear can be severe, assuming no lifters are collapsed the highest % noise generating potential is found in the wear of those two components.

I say 'want' because this one year transmission has no internal parking pawl meaning you set to neutral, stop engine and set this drum parking brake with foot pedal to hold car in parked position. It was and is a terrible system with drivers of these cars later customarily carrying chocks on th
