I am currently attempting a rebuild in my 1993 geo metro LSI convertible. I bought it with over 100k miles on it (had 140 when i took it apart), and it was running i guess decent at the time. Then over time the motor started to idle really rough, and i just kept on driving it.
Long story short i have a burnt exhaust valve on cylinder 1. heres some pictures which are fun to look at, especially if you have the same motor/car.

this was the cause of the bad cylinder. burnt exhaust valve.
Image
the cylinder w/o carbon was the weak cylinder, the fuel/oil kept it washed. It was also brought to my attention that, the carbon should be even over the whole cylinder. cylinder 2 and 3's rings are gone you can tell because they arent covered in carbon.
Imagethis is a really fun first time rebuild for me. simple and small! (one person can lift out the motor with their hands) ;)
Image its soo tiny!!
Imageaccidentally fell off the workbench.. whoops.
Imageview from the hubble. you can see the svt too!!

I was wondering too. Looks like he loosened the cam sprocket bolt and left it that way for the picture, and it also looks like he wore the clutch disk down to the rivets by the time he pulled it out.
Nice vert though! :)
