Puled out the glo plug and noticed some fine shavings.
Pulled the head and discoverd that one of the headbolts were barely hand tightend! Upon inspection, concluded that the shavings came from not cleaning glo plug threads after tapping.
Everything looks beautiful inside. After 8 tanks there is a slight sign of even burn patterns on the piston. Cylinder wall is perfect.

Cleaned her up and put her back together, all is good.:banana:

Tell me about it, I wasn't too happy when I seen them.
But I found out where they came from, so I was quite relieved.
When you tap aluminium, because the metal is so soft the first section when the tap makes contact could roll up. Like a burr.
No one cleaned it up and when the glo plug was tightend it flattend the shavings. I could see it plain as day, thats why I pulled the head to make sure none fell in. I spun the crank TDC to BDC. Seen no trace of damage or reminants of shavings.
She ran like a top today .:D
