    maybe the PVs?

    if gas, remove the springs

    if electric, disconnect the power cable to the servo motor and manually rotate the valves open

    Check your pm. I'm up tonight.

    What is your carbs and Jetting?
    Has the engine been pressure tested?
    Silly question...did you put the pv cables on the right sides of the pulley?
    What is your fuel pressure?
    Have the carb pumps been tested?
    Did you increase cooling? If so, what is your head pressure?
    When you rebuilt your crank, were the 3 pickups nice and square, or did they have ANY damage?
    Do you have your plastic coupler cover in place? Are you running water socks?

    Iwould take the covers off the powervalves to make sure 1 or more have not had the pin come out, and are staying down.
    Or ,do a compression check after disconecting the p.v motor with the valves down, and then manually open the valves and re do. There should be about 5-7psi difference between open and closed.

    Have you tried a comp check with the valves up AND down?
    It has been known for the valves to crack on the stems
