Injector Seal Ring burnt through pics link

Gentleman,
I am in need of experience and expertise...
Can someone tell what might have gone wrong here? Or hypothesize such that I can try to figure out what is going on?

As always, I am deeply indebted and humbled by the knowledge of those in the profession.

looks to me like either the injector face is trenched or the prechamber face is trenched.
(or you did a joe and under torqued it)

The crush seemed good in that the center ring is forced downa dn when I compare it onthe bench it looks like it had a good seal.
torque value was 54 or 57 ft lbs. Can't remember at the moment. Which I think is correct according to Haynes.

Could a "trenched" prechamber cause a slight miss? this is my symptom and I have been trying a lot of things to correct this problem. I also used about a quart of oil ove the 550 miles with a motor that compression checked at 345 to 360 psi in all 5 holes. I'm thinking valve stem seals for fixing this...
As you can tell I'm grasping at straws here!

I'm about ready to try a different IP and see if this will fix it but I only have access to a 1985 MW pump and this is a 1980. Should that be a problem though? The pump looks identical in all respects. I also have access to a 1979 M-RSF pump but it does not have the vacuum bleed mount on it. Would this matter for testing? I don't know why I am obsessed with the pump as the root of this problem other than it seems I have done just about everything else to try to isolate it.
