Thanks all for the input.
Maybe 'running rough' is not as accurate as saying that Pearl is occasionally stalling, and hesitating. The timing was definitely out, and getting it back in, has improved matters.
I retightened the exhaust clamps, and checked the oil drain bolt, which are oil-free.
I'm not at a place where I can work on her right now, besides the fact that it's freezing and raining... as soon as I have a place, I'll follow up on the valves, etc.

Freezing and raining? God, I hate this stupid planet, this dripping icy dungeon of dampness, why if I was God, I would have made our orbit a good five million miles closer to the sun and I would have eased the tilt to only about 18*, (and probably screwed up the entire LIFE thing).

Stay warm! Drive safe! Be alert to that loyal little engine back there!
