Kawasaki valve guide issues

Has anyone on here had issues with a valve guide on a FH721V? My engine lost power while mowing this week, after doing some investigating I found both push rods bent on cylinder #2. Digging a little deeper trying to find the cause all I come up with is the valve guide on the exhaust valve as backed out towards the rocker limiting how far my exhaust valve can open.

Overheating will cause this.

I am missing a few small pieces of my blower housing. I keep the entire machince blown off regularly, I really don't feel like I work it that hard. It has always been a very strong running engine. thanks for the info Mikel1
