I took the head off. Here is what I found.The guide moved unfortunately. I am debating whether to replace the head myself. I have already removed the head but I need to remove the valve springs and it seems like I might need a tool to do that. I have posted a picture of the guide. I will post some pictures of the top of the piston and bottom of the head. Curious if they look right to you.
I will try to call generac again and see if I can get them to provide some warranty coverage even though I am passed the 2 year point.
