Upper Chain Guide (UGLY!)

I don't know how I missed this on disassembly, but definitely couldn't miss it on installation. $137 at powersedge.com. $147 at cheapcycleparts.com. Found a used one on EBay for $20.

ChaChing!

Started smoking up the neighborhood! Ended up replacing 4 valve guides, 3 valves, and all the valve seals. Went ahead and replaced the rings while I was in there...

I've gotta figure out the signature thing.

Is this the part that the ACCT pushes against?

Yes, it is. I'm thinking maybe the tensioner wasn't installed correctly and was pushing too hard.
