    That looks like a raw fuel failure. You can be on needing a cylinder as well. Will need to tear down, inspect connecting rod bearings and crank bearings. Be sure to presure test your way out. You dont want to do the repair agian.

    I slid my finger in the exaust port and felt the cylinder, it does not feel grooved,
