Didn't tighten the bolt in the cam pulley and got in a hurry to hear it run. Ran for about 10 minutes then that piston at a valve. Bought another motor for $50 that was 3.5 years and 70k miles ago.

Replaced the engine with 1 from an 83 aspen cade I got for 50 bucks. Put about 70k miles on it since and it was 50 well spent.
