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...
Are you using a camera or a phone to take the pics? I can't really see too much detail ( course my eyes need an overhaul).
But who would of thought that stuff would cross over like that? Interesting.
Yeah, upon closer squinting, I see the exh. valve looks to be open in the first pic.
