Hard to say but these are some causes.

Over revved. High speed sustaind for a long period of time. (not a short bursts)

Lean low speed or high speed needles can prematurely wear out parts (not enough oiling)

Dirty air filter.

What direction does the connecting rod face? Also can the G-Clips be found at lowes or home depot?

thanks
