I'm here, Chain stretch and 4 degrees retarded could cause these collisons. But I'm troubled by the combination of opposites. I don't have an answer, but it bothers me, I need to mock up an engine and cogitate on the possibilities.

Dude take that thing apart and inspect all aspects. There is a lot of literature on the subject.
I think Bogie was getting at that your main or journal bearings may be thin. Based on the fact that the engine has a lot of heavy use on it many things can be wrong.
Many of the possible operations such as checking for piston to valve are on this thread. But the first thing you should do is freshen up the bottom end. I will look over your input on this thread and sum up if you want but you should use your powers of deduction and get wrenching!
