I found what did my motor in. The vvt oil pump.

Found a spun bearing in the bad cylinder. Looks like I probably sucked the pan dry.

The extra slop in the rod cause it to come up more in the cylinder and hit the valve.

Total damage:
1 broken in half valve
1 busted lifter, all the rest apear worn
3 bent valves
1 missing piston
1 piston broken off the rod
2 bent rods
1 spun bearning
2 cylinder sleeves with lots of chunks missing
cracked block
camshaft scored on a few lobes
both heads need lots of work
windage tray bent
Crank scored up
Oil pump burnt up

Need to pull the trim off the door and work on getting the fenders lined up.

I also have an SS wing on the way!

Ordered some parts to refresh my glide, all it needed was a new band. I hope to have the motor back in by next weekend.
