So it looks like a blown head gasket. I believe cyl 5 has a little hydro lock going on. That is why starter fried out. I think fixing it should solve problem since once it starts up it rubs fine

Who came to that conclusion? Hydro locking in a cylinder caused the starter to fry? My experience with hydro locking in engines is something within the cylinder(s) have to give first to relieve the pressure on the compression stroke. Often a cracked block or a bent connecting rod. Interesting. Keep us posted.
