    Mattie sent me pics of the lifter valley a couple days ago and with the pics enlarged I couldn't see anything wrong with the roller lifters , push rods or cam lobes .I even asked about the distributor and he mentioned there was no damage

    I was just wondering if there was bouncing damage to the pistons???

    Check the timing set if it has a roller timing set. I have seen the rollers come apart and look like that, and that one piece looks like the tip of a timing gear.
