Valve seats. You may need to enlarge.Looks like this could have been the cause of problems

That's the problem with your engine George.
Way to large the seat area
Guides are gone

You didn't burn a valve for good luck.

New valve seats
New guides
New valves

Sorry, will be expensive. Sometimes there are B16 heads on the market. I will have a closer look for you
Enjoy the weekend as good as possible.
Good luck, Kay
