I will be disassembling an engine shortly ... Based on a parts examination during disassembly

What would be the obvious indicators of the engine having had a problem with detonation.

Interested in both drastic indicators and minor indicators.

Piston tops could be damaged, cracked or broken ring lands and rings.

Blown head gaskets.

Cracked, chipped, or sunken exhaust valves.

No electrode left on the spark plug.

Rod bearings with scaled and pounded looking surfaces, etc.

Cracked cylinder heads.
