Default Pushrod tube bent

Can I just loosen the top head cover and the allens at the bottom and twist it to hide the bend in the back? Im not ready to learn how to remove a whole top half and might as well wait until adding pistons and other things before pulling it apart. I also seen some push rod tube covers online but im not too sure about them and they are billet and wont match the head covers. Any ideas would be appreciated

You did post this on a facebook page as well, my comment was on reply of Heff his comment:

I would definitely say the push rods are bent too as have these tubes out on mine and there not a lot of space in there


And subsequent comment:


not a lot of space in there and surely you do not want to damage your engine. So a great opportunity to learn how to take the beast apart. And this parts is not hard, just needs time and do things step by step and keep it clean

That is a good little bash. Like Dutch said I would DEFINITELY take it apart to assess the damage.

So i think i will be swapping out the pushrod and tubes just to be safe. I know i probably need to order new o rings for the tube but do i need head gasket or any other gaskets?
I don't know how to do this yet so i don't know what all ill need. This pushron tube is the front one only. the back is still perfect.

No idea. Got it that way. The person who owned it before me and my stepdad died so no idea.
