Over the weekend I was taking apart my carbs and power valves as part of my yearly maint and one of the "pods" for the power valves was full of metal shavings. After taking it apart I found that the threads on the end of the power valve had been completely stripped, it is worn to basically a smooth shaft. What could cause that? Have any of you guys ever heard of this?

Yup, I have seen it. Mostly when someone over tightens the cap to the valve.
