Yeah? Could have weakened/cracked some rings and all it took was another romp on it to do the rest of the damage.

The fact that the plug got that damaged, there has to be some serious piston damage going on.

Yeah, it's amazing how much damage a tiny piece of metal can do. If a valve closed on it for example, you could easily bend it.

i have had a chance yet to look at the valves or diage them im goin fill the clyander with air an see which valve is leaking air. as i go though each valve to see if the exhaust one leaks or the intake one. an if its a ring the only way to find that one is to drop a piston. yay not lol. when we bored scooped it the top of the pistion is good an the walls look good still.

I hope it's something minor, but it's not sounding good. Mike is right, start with a compression test, and then take that POS bottle to your nearest gun range and end it before it causes you more trouble.

Filling the cylinder with air is a redneck compression test - get a real compression tester, with a gauge. You work at an auto parts store right?
