How old are the valve springs?

sounds to me like you might be floating valves.check your valve springs to make sure their strong enough for the cam your running.
as dirtracer said how old are they?
I suggest replacing every year.
If they are stock definately replace,they will collapse.

also check timing to make sure your not too advanced.
Hope this helps!

This is the second year on the valve springs. Never had a problem with them. They are good for my cam. They are 600# springs. When the motor sat for the winter, I loosened the rocker arms so they wouldn't weaken the springs. I am going to check them and thanks for the replys.
