Hey man, just a tip. When doing up close detail shots of your stuff, look for this option on your camera in order to shift the focusing mode to macro, or close up.

How did it manage to do that? over rev?

Hopefully just new valves, There is a chance the guides may be FUBAR too.

Had the engine out all last winter doing little things to it, and when I installed everything again I forgot to torque the cam bolt and ran it up to redline after riding it around easy a while and out she came. Im going to take it down to a very trusted shop and let them take a more edjucated look at it. Ive already priced everything at retail and its not too bad, shop will give it to me just above cost if not at with shop labor.

Besides if I can get one fixed, I can part with the other. regardless ill probably be parting with pieces of one.

If you are going to part the pieces of the other motor I might be interested in one of the cylinder heads. Perferably the '97 motor thanks.

yeah, replaced the valves on my mazda without checking the guides. it runs better, but burns a lot of oil on startup and a bit on higher revs. new guides in a couple of weeks though (along with ANOTHER head gasket - not cheap them mazda ones!)
