I read where you and PCB discussed a warped head, but didn't see anything mentioned about the valves. A 'few' teeth off makes it likely that at least some of the valves were bent due to contact with the pistons, so I'll ask if you checked them to see if any were damaged.That’s the worst part,I bought it not running from a kid that had no idea what was wrong with it. He said he was doing about 80 on the highway and it just died on him. When we tore it apart the first time it just looked like the timing belt stretched out and skipped a few teeth. ….
