    I would think you would have more compression loss if a valve dropped. Also if you can get your hands on a boroscope it would save you some time. If there was a valve or part of a valve jingling around in there I would be suprised if you could have even gotten the spark plug out based on my experience.

    Read this. http://greenhulk.net/forums/showthread.php?t=49376

    Due to the monthly changing price of Titanium you will have to email me for current cost.

    Sounds like your issue could be Valve related or it could be piston related due to detonation (smashed ring lands) Do a leak down test to be sure. Valve spring change is a must either way if you want to make it more dependable and since you got the motor down.

    First Things first, I will get that valve cover off and see what is damaged. Retainer, spring or valve it self. I have a boroscope, but might as well open it up and look with my own eyes.

    Friend decided to bring ski to the shop.
    they took engine down, valve train seems to be intact as they say, right now engine is in machine shop and some parts are on order, looks like piston damage due to detonation.

    shop says the following needs to be replaced:

    One Piston/Ring set
    Four Crank Bearings
    Complete Engine Gasket kit
    Valves/Head Seals

    I seen it happen more than a few times is why i told you that. People need to run the correct fuel and make sure it is of good quality.

    Always..
