Default DLE 55 rebuild problem!?!?!

rebuilt my DLE 55 after it scored the side of the piston and cyl and messed up the ring. so I bought a new cyl, piston, gaskets and bowman ring.

cleaned everything up, assembled it...

started right up... after the 2nd tank of gas when i landed it sounded funny. checked it all over... seemed fine....

flew a couple minute on the 3rd tank and i could hear it running funny. so I landed... then noticed a little bind or something goofy as it was going through the compression stroke..

pulled the motor apart and this is what I found....

***!


any ideas? ever seen this?

Looks like during the rebuild something got left in the engine.
