Also, what the hell do I make of this? Inside the inlet valves are these marks that look like the valves were misaligned for a short period of time. In the first photo you can see the valves are closed with the marks above them. In the second, you can see the valves are opened and the marks. Perhaps the fluid in the cylinder pushed the valves up into the sidewall when the piston compressed??

Since I'm apparently incapable of resizing images, and my iPhone takes massive photos, here's a imgur link to the photos...

Those marks look like they are on the sides of the seats. I think for the valves to make contact there, they would be visibly mangled. Must be from something else.

Anyway, very interesting. Let us know the findings.
