Thank you Tom. It looks as though I have some reading cut out for me tomorrow. Either way I look at it, I need to pull the motor apart. I'm not pleased with the leakdown results I got. (three cylinders in question; 22%, 24%, and 18% by the valves...the rest are within 5% leakdown) I tend to be a bit AR (anal retentive) when it comes to my cars and hobbies. I have about 4000 miles on the engine since I did the valve job. The leakdown test at the time pointed to the valves. The leakdown test I just did also pointed to the valves. (again) I spoke to the machinist that did the valve job for me and he is willing to work with me on this. I'll try and post pics as I go along. My decision on the pistons will hinge on what I read tomorrow.
Thank you for the tip on the "beat to death thread". My apologize for not doing a search first. I just shot from the hip. My bad!
