She didn't, did she?
It all reminds me of something that Molière once said to Guy de Maupassant at a café in Vienna: "That's nice. You should write it down."

even being a "EX-Honda Fanatic" and going thru a number of honda motors in and out i cant think of where that (from what i can tell) item could possibly have come from... first thought (guess) would be the MECH that did the timming belt might have "LOST" a bushing of some sort, or possable a IFO (identifible flying object) from a near workspace.

Please post better pics of the "ITEM" when possible or a WHAT IT IS

best of luck

Come on guys, I'm not a mechanic, but I know that those are valves. 16 valves ( 4 per head ). Looks like the you bent the crap out of the valve(s) to me. Here's anoth pic of a dual valve system http://www.spagweb.com/gallery/rebuild2/images/valves1.jpg 

Usually when you bend a valve, it doesn't not let you start the vehicle. It usually makes a terrible knocking sound. But since you had peices come out of the head, this might have scored the head and the cylinder walls as well.

Except he wasn't taking a picture of the VALVES :) He was taking a picture of the little ball-lookin' thing UNDER the valves, jamming it open, and finally in his hand... It does not look like it ever made it TO the cylinder, either. It was too large an object to pass through the "curtain". It just wedged itself in the valve seat. This MAY have damaged the valve seat, though.
Did you get some better resolution photos of that thing yet?

Nah its gone. The valve seat is fine, thankfully the metal that "thing" is made out of is soft. Just waiting on the gaskets to get it back together.

Crap man this is so frustrating! I know hondas like the back of my had. But damn I can't understand where that thing came from... My only thought is that if the inner part is threaded it could be part of your airbox...
Damn auex I need closure.
