Continental; O-200; Stuck Exhaust Valve; ATA 8530

A mechanic describes finding the exhaust valve in cylinder number three stuck. After cylinder removal the valve head was found "mushroomed" and associated damage to the rocker arm was also noted. “This caused concern due to the fact that the cylinder only had 174.1 total hours since it was purchased new.... Was this an isolated incident, or do we have some bad components on the market?”

Part Total Time: 174.1 hours.
