Sounds like deformed burned exhaust valves are causing the leaks.

Well done on the diagnosis and treatment. I can't believe the cams were installed that way! Good catch.

I'm sure you know this, but a leakdown test will help find valve leaks quickly, and a few sharp raps on the valve stems while air pressure is applied will usually clear the junk out from under the valves. Techron will likely get rid of the rest. Hopefully it's all gone now and your clearances hold. DD

What a ride this thread is!

Looking forward to hearing if this next one is the last time you'll have to tear down and check.
