if the valve did stick, it is possible for the upper ball to jump out of the socket and then the next stroke up when the valve pulled back up would do a number on the p/r's.

Cleaned the valves with good ol' gasoline, got most of the carbon off. About to install new pushrods and see what happens... *fingers crossed*
