Ever have a Kohler muffler that rattles when you remove it.???
It used to was Kohler's official stance that those little broken pieces of the baffles could NOT re enter the cylinder via the exhaust valve....and damage the cylinder..piston...valves...or the head...
They didn't want to warranty the muffler during the headgasket replacements that were so common...

This picture is the SMOKING GUN....I got them...
The intake valve guide broke in pieces on cylinder #1. And if you'll notice...
There is a piece of that valveguide stuck under the exhaust valve on cylinder #2..
Cross contamination through the muffler...it does happen...
