did you accidentally drop some trash into an intake port?
sounds like its time for a compression test

You didn't mention if you pulled the valve covers or not.....? left something behind when putting valve covers back on?

most places locally will charge in the $300-$400 range

for a 3 angle valve job and conversion to screw in rocker studs, if you don,t need valves, or valve springs replaced
obviously youll want a firm quote in writing describing what needs to be machined and replaced,
