SOMETHING caused those studs to pull out. My guess is the timing chain jumped and caused the valves to hit the pistons and that interference caused the studs to pull. Another thought is the valves were adjusted too tight by somebody and the valve springs bound up and pulled the studs. I would check the pushrods and see if any are bent.
