Wow, Looks like bearings [looking through your eyes], where are you on the West coast. I would rather defer any judgement to some more testing.

Are your plugs getting fouled with oil. Is there a clunking noise...

Shavings, brass type are bearings of some sort, unless you have cross threaded something that may be brass.

3.4 for sure if you upgrade.

I would keep the motor in an Non Op until you figure it out though. The more you run it the more likely you will do more damage.

Sorry :(
