It happens. you can't NOT break something occasionally..helll, it could have been a defective-from-new part.
those manley valves that are supposed to be 'the best'?
my bud had the same thing happen (pulled an exhaust valve head off the stem) in his very spendy single-stick honda 750 motor back when.
uuuuggggglllly, heartbreaking and expensive.
sorry to hear of your misfortune...up until then, it souonded VERY like it was verrrryyy healthy!
over 200PSI cranking compression? I'd take that any day!
