ewwgg...that brings back some painful memories!
We had to do a total rebuild on the 327 in my Dad's 61 Vette. He lost a screw from the points when he was doing a tune up and putting another carb on. He just prayed that it fell back behind the engine and not into the carb mount on the intake.
On the road heard that pop pop pop...
When we pulled it apart we found two bent push rods and a cracked piston. Ooopps...I guess that screw DID go into the carb, LOL And my Dad has been working on cars for 40 years, it's the first time he pulled that one! OH, and I might add that this was the year he got glasses (after the incident)
The heads were fine, block was fine along with everything else. We just had to replace that pistion and all the push rods.
Ahhh..it was due for another rebuild anyway!
I hope you find the problem, I know your pain!
