Oh sharp eyes I see ...
yeah... *hangs head* that's the #5 intake valve retainer itself apparently it got hammered on or something (not sure if the chicken or the egg came first?) , and shall be replaced/fixed
#5 Intake valve has problems , and I'm sure it is a sticky valve.. ( fought me a little bit taking it out.. carefully as I could )
#5 won't be going back in ... I slid in #4 , and #6 intake valves into the #5 intake valve guide... with = success.
Rocker looks good though.
Shall be replacing it , and moving forward !
