I really appreciate the suggestions, but would any of these actually cause no compression on the cylinder or just misfires?

Root if the screw gets sucked into the motor it could get stuck in the between the valve.

Valve won't close and thus no compression. Take a pic over the piston #1 too. Right over the top of it with the highest detail you can.

No, just replaced the one bad one, all the rest cleaned up nicely.... But unfortunately, the head is going back to the shop tomorrow

I'm so pissed at myself, I misread inch pounds for foot pounds when torquing down the cam brackets and I snapped a bolt I spent all day trying to extract it and so I just pulled the head back off...
