    So why did it bend them?

    No idea. Probably thrashed by someone at some point, it had been rattling for a while

    Can't say as I've noticed a difference with how it runs but the motor is nice and quiet now.

    I reckon I may have a weeping head gasket on the left hand cylinder bank. It was a relatively cool morning but the left side huffs more vapour than I expect. I'll have to keep an eye on it.
