What a noise!!    Number three plug blew out.   Started making a bad noise.  Sounds worse than just a plug out.  Dont know yet if anything is damaged.  Spark plug threads are stripped

Pull the head and inspect for cracks between the spark plug hole and the valve seats. Cracks between the seats are OK but between the plug hole and seats means the head's finished. It shouldn't have caused any engine damage when it blew out.

Heads off.  Exhaust valve is burnt real bad.   No crack.   Should be easy fix.
