If it injested a screw and the piston trapped it against an open valve it could have tweaked the rocker arm and you could now have an excess of clearance on that one valve stem.
Something that could be adjusted out by setting both valves on that rocker back to zero clearance.
That needs some serious thought. I keep thinking I trashed a lifter but it could have been the rocker as you say.
Ill sure enough look into this when I pull the rockers next time.
