... let me rephrase that.

the holes for the bolts that hold the cover look fine (and ya, 50- 60 inch is right, depends on your source)

the ones you are worried about are the ones that hold the caps on the cam journals.... those are 104 in/lb

and I meant left side for the divot (left when sitting on the bike). what I think may have happened is the spring going through the chain cocked the gear & shaft so it hit the side or the head.... the only way that could happen (I think) is the cam cap bolts either stretched or the threads got pulled. so again.... replace the bolts & helicoil as required.

and if the divot is on the right side Larryboy may be right & the spring went through the decomp lever

(trying to figure how only one valve gets hit)

but pretty sure thats not what put the chunks in the case & piston.... something else. in fact mebby a couple

and btw... the cam chain should probably go in the dumper too
