Thanks for the replies. This is the first time that I took apart the cylinders so I am careful not to mix up both sides (noob here); I am sure that with experience it will be easy to differentiate the two sides. I also read up and it seems that the rocker arms and valves are not interchangeable left/right sides. Great pointers from all.
The valves will be re-seated and I've sent them to a machinist to get that done.
Meanwhile, I did some work on the pistons. Kinda got carried away on the left one:
It seems that there is some markings of engine capacity / piston direction on the piston's surface. There's also something that looks like a "$" sign?
The right one has an interesting pattern of wear, anything I should be concerned about?
When I was cleaning the right piston, I found this ....
So an order is out for a new set of rings. Looks like it's more than just pushrod seal replacement :)
