    The aluminum you're finding on the MAG spark plug probably means there are bigger problems in the crankshaft. I would guess that when you burned that original piston that some metal got down in the crank and has caused your bearings to begin failing.

    Your best bet is to remove the engine, tear it down to the crank and evaluate the bottom end. You might need to either have your crank refurbished or buy one at this point.
