Malim...do not reuse that connecting rod, or wristpin. They are definitely bent. Only slightly can make a difference, trust me.
Also, other responder was correct, exhaust seats hardened, have new seats pressed into intake and have metal "gnurled" over them to prevent this from happening again.
Also, I've kept up this whole time, you are doing a great job. Don't listen to users like Top Ace, you're doing fine.
