This is very interesting. I am doing the exact same rebuild now. I just buttoned up the engine and I'm getting it ready to reinstall. For me, #2 intake lost lubrication and the spray bar was the culprit. I forced solvent through the spray bar from end to end so I did not save the pieces that clogged the port.

I had switched to Mobil-1 from 20-50 two oil changes prior to the carnage. I've suspected this was a mistake and thought some debris might have been dislodged by the oil type change. Since the discussion of ZDDP, I have found that I can get Rotella-T locally. I am going back with Rotella and changing it weekly!
