Response to Ok who has suffered Cleveland cylinder wall failure???

Mine was a mispaced carb base nut. I dropped it and couldn't find it. I even pulled the intake and checked the runners, I didn't see it.
Trying to start the motor I found it. I dropped it into a runner that had an open intake valve. It compressed some but not enough. You guys know what happened next.

It was a really valuable (expensive) lesson. I keep the nut around to remind myself. I should have pulled the head when I couldn't find the nut or at least I should have turned the engine over by hand.
