    managed to source out new head bolt to replace the the block heater which does double duty as the center bottom head bolt on the left hand cylinder head.. It is difficult to torque properly and with global warming probably not required any longer.
    (will post picture of this block heater element which extends deep into block and and down to the oil in the pan.) IMG_1143.JPG IMG_1144.JPG

    Ran into a little glitch... the lifter associated with the sticky valve was damaged and needs to be replaced.. ordered and on the way, should be here by Wednesday... lifter removal was not too difficult... wear on mating surfaces is minimal.. a little shellac on the lower side perimeter .. the cup suffered damage.. will do another oil and filter change... cleaned the lifter valley out and used magnets to search for any metal fragments.. after the oil change, will attach a long bar magnet to the base of the oil pan to limit circulation of any contaminates IMG_1163.JPG IMG_1161.JPG IMG_1160.JPG ..
    ( hoping to find the missing piece from the cup in the oil)

    found the last piece of the puzzle.. changed oil and filter, took filter apart and found nothing.
    Another search of the lifter valley with a more powerful magnet brought success.... located last piece tucked in behind adjacent lifter.:thumbsup: IMG_1174.JPG
